Abstract
Line source sprinkler irrigation trials were carried out during three consecutive seasons in Thika, Kenya, to evaluate the suitability of bebn cultivars for' semi-arid areas. GLP-X.SOb proved to be the highest yielding cultivar at all levels of drought stress (from zero to severe stress). GLP-I004, GLP-X.92 and GLP-X.1127(a) were also drought resistant, while GLP-X.1l31: GLP-X.1132 and GLP-X.1124 were the most drought susceptible.
