AbstractTwenty four new barley entries in addition of the local variety (Rihane-03) were studied in RCBD with two replications under the rainfed conditions of northern region of Iraq. Number of days to 50% anthesis, plant height, spike length, number of grains/spike, number of spikes/m2, biological yield, grain yield, harvest index and 1000-grain weight. Entry Assala-04 Superior was in three characters: plant height, number of spikes/m2 and grain yield. phenotypic and variances were highly significant for all the characters. genetic variances were significant for all the characters except for biological yield and 1000-grain weight. Broad–sense heritability value was high for number of grains/spike.
