Summary

A two-year field experiment was conducted during 2011‒2012 to study the breeding effect on N use efficiency traits of barley. All together 195 genotypes (72 the Nordic Genetic Resource Center landraces and 123 cultivars released during 1916-2010) were grown in two N regimes (35 and 70 kg N/ha) at the experimental farm of MTT Agrifood Research Finland (presently Natural Resources Institute Finland) in Jokioinen. The results revealed clear positive breeding effect on N use efficiency in barley cultivars. Breeding had also improved grain yield, disease resistance and traits related to yield, like grain number, grain weight and harvest index
