Earliness is an efficient means that enables plants to avoid drought, heat and extreme solar radiation. Shortening growth cycle can, in Mediterranean settings, prevent subsequent stresses. Every temperature rise and water stress, within the period of filling of seeds, will be interpreted as a regression of that period, and will compromise yields through the reduction of carbon assimilation. Effects of water stress, in the areas affected by drought, are among the major factors reducing yields of wheat, especially just before flowering till 15 days after the emergence of anthers. This paper aims at determining the variability among a group of local genotypes pertaining to oases (Algeria) soft wheat in terms of earliness of ear emergence, duration of filling stage, seeds weight, and plants height when they attain ripeness.  Gaps of ear emergence between the earliest genotype, the latest one and the two check genotypes equaled: 30, 25 and 14 days, respectively.

Keywords:  Wheat, oases genotypes, Earliness, Drought, Avoidance, Water Stress.
