Among 230 barley germplasm, only 24 significantly superior lines as compared to standards were identified for most of the characters studied. Superiority of these lines were based on adjusted mean value of yield and its components. On the basis of yield superiority and phenotypic acceptability only 12 elite lines were identified which may be used as donor for providing their potential value during barley improvement programme. These elite lines were K 273; P 486; P 478; K 501; RD 2496; K 511; P 515; BHS 249; P 485; K 375; P 513 and K 500. Thus presence of high variability in the present material indicates potential for crop improvement.
