In the province of Kosovo there exists no local wheat breeding programme; cultivars grown were originally developed and registered in former Yugoslavia and other neighbouring countries. Within the general attempt to reconstruct the agriculture of Kosovo a three-year study was undertaken to establish winter wheat genotypes adapted to Kosovan growing conditions. Seventy-seven international winter wheat cultivars and/or breeding lines were tested for their agronomic and quality performance in 2000; forty-nine selected genotypes of the nursery were further tested in 2001 and 2002. The multivariate dataset included six yield-and twenty-two quality-related parameters which were subjected to principal component analysis and subsequently to cluster analysis. The 49 genotypes were differentiated into six groups. Two groups which included almost exclusively Central and Eastern European cultivars and breeding lines, respectively, turned out to be best adapted to the prevalent conditions. These genotypes revealed high agronomic and high quality performances, and could, therefore, serve as valuable wheat genetic resources for the buildup of a local winter wheat breeding programme in the future.
