Abstract: 

Hulless barley with high quality and high nutritious value and higher test weight than the common barley could play an important role in compensation requirements of grain production in our country. This research was conducted in experimental of field of Shahid Chamran University, Ahvaz, Iran. The experiment was an augmented design in 6 blocks including 54 genotypes and three common barley varieties as cheek. The field soil was sandy loam, with pH=7.7 and EC=3.6 mmhos/cm. Each genotype planted in 1.35 m^2, 3-4 cm depth in six rows with 1.5 meter length between rows was 15 cm. During the growth period, lodging percentage, rust disease, days between emergence to heading and to maturity, plant height and tillering coefficient were measured. Yield, yield components, and some characters of these genotypes were evaluated after correction for incomplete block effects. The highest grain yield was 5999 kg/ha for genotypes number. One of the checks was also in the same group. Because of low percentage of fiber and high protein content, in naked barley compared to common barley, the results show that 12 genotypes had more than 4000-kg/ha grain, so they were preferred to common barley. As a result of this experiment, these genotypes have been selected as the best genotypes.
