Hulless barley, grain yield, genotype, protein, β-glucan


Hulless barley is a multi-purpose cereal crop grown for different use worldwide. This study was carried out to determine grain yield, yield components and some quality traits of twenty-five hulless barley genotypes in 2018-2019 growing season in Bilecik conditions. The experiment was set up in a randomized block design with four replications. Significant differences were determined between genotypes in terms of all traits examined. Grain yield, plant height, spike length, number of grains per spike, 1000-grain weight, hectoliter weight, fat, starch, protein, β-glucan, acid detergent fiber and neutral detergent fiber contents of the genotypes were found between 2.38 to 5.78 t ha-1, 79.75 to 110.25 cm, 10.50 to 7.75 cm, 21.65 to 60.15, 31.57 to 44.66 g, 71.24 to 81.11 kg, 1.94 to 2.81%, 56.36 to 62.74%, 13.95 to 18.09%, 3.70 to 5.43%, 1.94 to 4.02%, 22.57 to 26.25%, respectively. G7 numbered genotype had higher values than general averages in terms of all traits except for starch ratio. The results obtained from the study will shed light on future studies on hulless barley.
