The pale yellow-seeded Amaranth is virtually a new crop in Nigerian agriculture. Under the sponsorship of the National Agricultural Research Project (NARP), 12 accessions were evaluated for agronomic characters and yield attributes in three agro-ecological zones of the country. The results showed significant variation in the agronomic characters of the accessions. Top accessions recorded average grain yields of 4.5, 3.5, and 2.6 t·ha–1 in Sudan savanna, derived savanna, and guinea savanna zones of the country, respectively. Response of the accessions to qualitative and quantitative characters in the zones are discussed.
