in four rows 5 meters at AZRC, Quetta during 1987-1997 and also at five other locations of highlands of Balochistan in RCBD design with three replications.
Based on good performance in grain yield and resistance to diseases, this line was included in Advanced Yield Trial
(AYT) during 2001-02.

Hatcher was assigned experimental number CO980607 and evaluated in nonreplicated preliminary yield trials in 1999, replicated advanced yield trials
in 2000, replicated statewide variety trials from 2001 to 2004, and the Southern Regional Performance Nursery (SRPN) in 2003 and 2004.
Merrit was tested in advanced yield trials
at three locations each year from 1997 to 2000.

In 1993-1994, it was tested in advanced yield trials
at two sites, Jemat Shaim (rainfall, 330 mm) and Marchouch (rainfall, 290 mm), and was found superior to other test entries including the check L 24.

After testing in a nonreplicated preliminary screening nursery and replicated preliminary and advanced yield trials
between 1983 and 1985, it was entered into the international testing program in 1986 as one of the promising lines in the small-seeded lentil nursery.
CO960293 was derived as an [F.sub.4:5] line in 1996 and tested in preliminary yield trials in 1997 and advanced yield trials
