Abstract

Participatory variety selection was initiated to evaluate the performance of improved faba bean varieties and used in the seed production system. The study was conducted in wokin zuria village of Dabat district on four volunteer farmers’ field during the 2010 cropping season using ten faba bean genotypes. The analytical tools employed include descriptive statistics and average score value. Selection was carried out at four different growth stages by organizing a field day at each stage i.e. at vegetative, flowering, physiological maturity, and harvesting. The evaluations mean score for each genotype ranged from 5.6 to 9.2. DOSHA (13.2) scored the highest and the lowest was scored by DEGAGA (8.2). Finally, the three best varieties namely DOSHA, WOLKI and WAYU were selected by farmers’ evaluation which showed better performance and found to be promising from the analysis of collected data and more likely to enter in the seed production system by Seed Producing Cooperatives (SPC’s). The findings showed that farmers have an indigenous knowledge to select varieties that meet their demand.

Keywords: Ethiopia, participatory, seed production, selection, varieties.
