The Land Equivalent Ratio (LER) did not differ between hanfets types but was on average over 50% greater than in the pure crops, showing a clear advantage of the diversified system. Stability analysis showed that the most stable entries always included some hanfets, although not all of them were more stable than pure crops. Both men and women selected for traits like high grain yield, earliness, short heads, low kernel weight, and short-statured plants, and seemed to prefer hanfets in which both components were early heading and maturing.
