Aims

To evaluate the adaptability of a range of lentil varieties and breeding lines in the low rainfall zone. 
 

Key messages
  • Growth of lentil varieties and breeding lines was poor and grain yields were very low due to extremely dry conditions and multiple frost events during the growing season. Several of the salt tolerant lines appeared to show better growth early in the season.
  • PBA Hurricane XT matured relatively early compared to other recently released varieties under dry conditions.
  • Consistent with previous seasons, the new breeding line CIPAL1504 had grain yield similar or higher than recently released varieties, highlighting its yield stability and potential for future release.
