    Abstract: Ethiopia has suitable environmental condition for fenugreek production. However, the productivity of fenugreek is very low as compared with world average due to lack of stable, high yielding, and disease resistant genotypes. Therefore, the objective of this study was to evaluate the promising genotypes and verify the most stable, high yielding and ... Show More
