Evaluation of yield correlation in the two environments and drought tolerance indices showed that (Table 4) there is positive and meaningful correlation between yield in two environments and indices MP, GMP and STI and also there is meaningful and negative correlation between yield under drought stress conditions and indices TOL And SSI, and finally there is meaningful and positive correlation between yield in normal irrigation conditions and indices TOL and SSI.
