Eight well adapted wheat varieties received from Regional Wheat Research Centre of Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute, Gazipur were evaluated in November-March’2018 at CARITAS beneficiary’s field located Lama and Alikadam upazilla of Bandarban district, Bangladesh. The varieties were raised following complete randomized block design with four replications. Morpho-agronomic traits were analyzed using cropstat-5 software. This research aimed to identify the potential wheat varieties for corresponding in a Rice-Wheat-Maize cropping pattern ensuring better crop production for food security. At Alikadam, among eight varieties BARI GOM-32 observed as best considering good yield despite of its short height (58.50 cm). However, significant difference did not observe in the same parameter between the varieties except plant height. At Lama, significant variations were found in almost all of the parameters except Grain/spike and plot yield. The highest grain/spike (40) and plot yield (12.38 kg) observed in BARI GOM 31 and BARI GOM-24 but significant variations did not among the varieties. Different morpho-agronomic parameters of the mentioned eight wheat varieties at Alikadam and Lama were compared.
