    Black cumin (Nigella sativa L.) is one of the most important spice and cash crop produced in Ethiopia. However, in the midland areas of Guji zone an access of improved Black cumin variety is highly limited. Due to this and other bottle neck factors, the potential of the area to Black cumin crop is not exploited. So, there is an urgent need to develop and promote technologies that suit for the area. As a result, the current experiment was conducted in the midland areas of Guji Zone (Dibayu, Gobicha, and Dole) at three farmers’ field to evaluate the growth and yield performance of Black cumin varieties and to select and recommend high yielding and diseases resistant Black cumin variety(ies) for midlands areas of Guji zone.
