The investigations carried out in 2016 and 2017 in Scientific Tobacco Institute - Prilep included 3 introduced fertile varieties and 3 male-sterile hybrid lines created in the Institute. The following traits were subject of analysis during the vegetation period: time of flowering, length/width of the 5th, 10th and 15th leaf, stalk height and leaf number. The earliest beginning (62 days) and end of flowering (71 days) was recorded in the check variety Coker - 348, and the last to complete these stages was the hybrid line V-112/15 CMS F1. The highest values for leaf size, leaf number and stalk height were measured in the male-sterile hybrid lines. Complete data analysis shows that the male-sterile hybrid lines V-79/09 CMS F1 and V-112/15 CMS F1 in almost all investigated traits dominate over other varieties and lines included in the trial. The purpose of this study is to help the potential growers in their decision which genotype to choose in the start of the production cycle and to make wider presentation of the research work of Tobacco Institute-Prilep.
