DOI : 10.21566/tarbitderg.323568 - This research was carried out with 14 bread wheat variety under rainfed conditions during 2014-2015 growing season according to randomized block designed with three replications in Bahri Dağdaş International Agricultural Research Institue. Yield, yield components and some quality characteristics were examined. According to the results of the research; Plant height 79.50-115 cm, spike length 8.87-11.10 cm, number of grains per spike 31.20-44.90 pieces, grain weight per spike 1.33-2.07 g, grain yield 447.42-709.08 kg/da, thousand kernel weight 30.90-46.46, test weight 73.32-78.35 kg/hl, 11.93-13.44% protein content, Zeleny sedimentation 26.0-39.50 ml and grain hardness(PSI) ranged between 41.27-64.82. Significant differences were found between the varieties in terms of plant height, number of grains per spike, thousand kernel weight, test weight , Zeleny sedimentation (p <0.01), spike lenght, grain weight per spike, grain yield, protein content and grain hardness (p <0.05). The highest plant height, highest spike length, highest number of grains per spike, highest grain weight per spike and highest grain yield were obtained from Demir-2000, Konya-2002, Gün-91, Bozkır and Karahan-99 varieties respectively.
