Tef is one of the most important staple food crop cultivated throughout the country. Nine tef varieties were brought from Debre Zeit Agricultural Research center and planted with one local check in randomized complete block design (RCBD) at yabello Pastoral and Dryland Agricultural Research Center main site for three consecutive years. The result of analysis revealed significant differences among genotypes in grain yield and biomass for all year under study. Tsedey was performed than other genotypes in 2011 cropping season in which low rainfall was recorded for the study area. Magna was performing well in study area relative to other genotypes in all cropping seasons except 2011 cropping season.
