The species has been an increasing trend in winter wheat crop. Cause is still better adaptability to existing conditions. Variability studies may bring some new information on how this adaptation took place. Racemes fruit had lengths between 6 and 15 cm, with a higher frequency 9-10 cm. Number of pods in raceme was between 1 and 10, mainly through 3-4 pods. The length of the beans was between 20 and 35 mm, with a higher percentage of between 26 and 28 cm. Width pods ranged between 5 and 10 mm, to 6 mm higher frequency. The number of beans in a pod ranged between 1.1 and 7.0, with greater frequency at 4.1-5.0. Grain diameter was between 2.0 and 3.1 mm with a frequency oscillating. The thousand kernels mass (TKM) was between 5.0-23.0 g, with the dominant 8.1-11.0 g. The correlations between different variables were positives. Foremost so long racemes with number of the pods/ raceme (r = 0.315***), then the length of the pods with the number of grains/ pod (r = 0.251**), and MTK with grain diameter (r = 0.710***). The study showed high adaptability of weeds in winter wheat crop.
