A total of 5337 barley accessions were evaluated for a number of traits. The accessions included indigenous germplasm collected from various parts of India; exotics selected from trials and nurseries received from ICARDA/CIMMYT, Mexico and ICARDA, Syria; as well as materials received from different countries over the last four decades. Out of the total accessions, 2801 were indigenous and 2536 exotic. Only 290 accessions were naked type, the rest were hulled. This paper summarizes results on classification and characterization of these accessions for various agro-morphological traits, associations among these traits, and frequency distribution and donors for days to heading, plant height and 1000-kernel weight.


Key words
