The highest fruit yield (226.5 q/ha) was recorded in 2014/OKHYB-4, followed by 2014/OKHYB-6 (200.4 q/ha), and the highest fruit yield (243.5 q/ha) was recorded in 2013/OKHYB-9, followed by 2013/OKHYB-10 (224.6 q/ha) among the entries tested (IET). The highest fruit yield (238.7 q/ha) was reported in 2012/OKHYB-13, followed by 012/OKHYB-15 (225.4 q/ha) among the entries tested (AVT-II).
