    Abstract: Field pea is an important pulse crops in Ethiopia, however the production is reduced due to many constraints including limited availability of improved variety and traditional farming systems. Twenty five advanced field pea genotypes were evaluate for ten traits at three locations during 2015/16 main cropping season using RCBD with two replications... Show More
