AbstractThe experiment was carried out in Abu-Ghraib. Research Station during winter season of 2004-2005 , to study the genotypic and phenotypic correlations for some barley characters Hordeum distichum L Using randomize complete block design with four replications , ten barley genotypes were used. Positive significant genotypic and phenotypic correlations between plant height and no. of spikes, grain weight were found (0.573 , 0.424) and (0.601 , 0.508) respectively. Spike length was showing positive significant genotypic and phenotypic correlation with number of grain per spike (0.945 , 0.819) and with flag leaf area (0.535) , under genetic correlation only. It was concluded that the breeder can rely on spike length , flag leaf area and plant height in selecting barley genotypes with higher grain yield .
