  As part of the evaluation and the development of plant genetic resources of fodder and pastoral interest in Algeria, ten populations of sulla (Sulla coronaria (L.) Medik. Syn. Hedysarum coronarium L.) were subject to an assessment. The growth and the chemical composition of the populations were analyzed in this framework. The field trial is a randomized complete block design with four replications. Several parameters (seeds thousand weight, emergence of seedlings, number of plants per square meter, maximum height, maximum width, bloom, cutting date, green matter, dry matter, mineral matter, organic matter, crude fiber, fat, phosphorus, calcium, total nitrogen, Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF), Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF), lignin, hemicellulose) have been determined. Two ecological factors (altitude, rainfall) were also taken into account. The variance analysis indicated a significant variation between the populations regarding eight variables linked to the growth and the chemical composition of the plant. Many significant relationships were also highlighted. The results of the correlation matrix indicated also that the total nitrogen content is negatively correlated with the number of plants per square meter and the final height. Overall, the results of principal component analysis showed a good distribution of variables, particularly, the final width, the hemicellulose and the NDF. The descriptive analysis signalized also the part of the altitude and the rainfall characterizing the natural habitats of the populations. This study permitted a better understanding of the nature of variation established within this species. Sulla can play a significant role in the socio-economic and environmental development of rural communities.
