The present study was conducted in 2015 to investigate the relationship between biological yield and some agronomic traits of common ecotypes of Lallemantia (Lallemantia iberica Fisch. et C. A. Mey) from Iran. For this purpose, seeds of common ecotypes of this plant were cultured as a square lattice design (7×7) with three replications at the Research Farm of the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Tabriz. Results showed that there were significant differences among Lallemantia ecotypes in all of study traits. The strongest relationship between the studies parameter and biological yield per plant in the means of data was that recorded between biological yield and seeds per plant (r=0.944**). 49 Lallemantia ecotypes were grouped in two clusters. Deviation from the mean for different traits showed that the group two ecotypes (1, 5, 43, 15, 38, 27, 16, 30, 45, 49, 7, 25, 20, 8, 40, 19, 18, 23, 31, 13, 44, 14, 32, 21, 36, 22, 34, 47, 37, 6, 24, 29, 46, 39 and 41) had the highest means for studies traits except chlorophyll content index.
