Despite the difficulties due to the Covid-19 pandemic, also during 2019-20 the variety comparison tests of durum wheat were conducted in Sicily, set up in 5 locations in Sicily: Libertinia (Catania), Catania, S. Stefano Quisquina (Agrigento), Caltagirone (Catania) and Ciminna (Palermo). The experimentation involved 30 varieties, of which 5 in the first year of evaluation, 9 cultivars in the second year of testing and 16 genotypes tested for over two years. The average yield of the Sicilian area was equal to 6.11 t / ha and the production results recorded in the different test environments appear to be significantly influenced by the climatic trend.
