Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is the most important cereal crop for
global food supply. Most of the wheat crop in developing countries
including Nepal is either grown rainfed condition or under limited
irrigation condition, thus water stress hits the wheat crop at
different growth stages which thus limiting the grain yield. An
experiment with 60 different genotypes of wheat was carried out in
Nepal for the characterization for drought adaptation.The ANOVA
(Analysis of Variance) revealed significant variation between
environments and among the wheat germplasms for most of the drought
adaptive traits. A wide range of variability was observed for the
selected drougt adaptive morpho-physiological traits in moisture
stressed and non-stressed environments. WUE was highly
significantly correlated with biomass production. Nepalese cultivar
Gautam showed a number of favorable drought adaptive traits. A
number of landraces and advanced breeding lines showed high level
of water use efficiency and other positive traits for drought
