ABSTRACT

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the earliness of four advance strains (CRIS-19, CRIS-52, CRIS-133 and CRIS-134) against one commercial variety CRIS-9 by using Bartlett`s Earliness Index. According to Bartlett "The higher the value of the index the earlier would be the variety". The results of this study demonstrated that CRIS-133 was recorded as earlier variety with 0.745 earliness index followed by CRIS-134 (0.719). CRIS-9 was observed as late variety with earliness index of 0.658 as compared to all other advance strains included in the test.
