The aim of this study was to investigate thesuitabilityof certainwheat cultivars(Triticum aestivumL.) from Hungary,and Croatia. Meanwhile, five wheat cultivars havebeen tested:Kolo, Marshall, Illyria,Superand Zhitarka,whileascomparativecultivar was Europe90. Investigationswere conductedintwoagro-climaticregionsof Kosovo (in Arbnesh, theresearchfarmofKosovo Institute of Agriculture, Peja -Dukagjini Plain and in Pestova-KosovoPlain, private research company “Pestova”. During the study, these parameters have been tested: yield (kg/ha), weight (1000seeds in gram), hectolitarweight(kg), protein content(%), humidity(%), glutenandsediments. The agro-climaticandpedologicaldataof Kosovocomparedwith harvested yields of wheat have been shown that wheat cultivars whichwere cultivated in Kosovo did not use the genetic potential.Forthisreason, it is recommended to be applied a contemporary agrotechnic in order to use high genetic potential of wheat cultivarsand to reachhigheryields. The obtained results showed that there were statistically significant differences at different levels to investigate all features included in the plots, compared with the standard (Europe 90) and between localities.
Keywords: winter wheat, weight of 1000 seeds in gram, hectoliter weight in kg, yield kg/ha
