Summary

Significant differences in quality parameters among varieties were recorded for yields of both the first and second cuts. Differences in D-values reflected the differences in earliness of varieties and differences in protein content reflected differences in the yield of a particular cut.
Quality assessment in cultivar trials would motivate breeders to enhance their efforts in quality improvement.
