Teff is one of the major and indigenous cereal crops in Ethiopia. It is a unique durable crop grown over a wide range of environmental conditions in Ethiopia and has been utilized as food and supplements for majority of the human diet in Ethiopia. The results were reported as an average value of triplicate analysis of (mean ± SD) and were analyzed by Fisher’s Least Significance Difference (LSD) method and at statistical significance of P<0.05. This study was conducted to generate information in different teff grain flour on some particle size distributionof teff [Eragrostisteff (Zucc.) Trotter] grain cultivars and its flour. Six teff varieties namely Quncho (DZ-Cr-387), Felagot (DZ-Cr-442), Tesfa (DZ-Cr-457), Kora (DZ-Cr-438), Dukem (DZ-Cr-425) and Dagme (DZ-Cr-43B varieties) were considered and their selection was based on their recent year coverage area and the expected future expansion. The grain particle size distribution showed that varieties differ in grain size and showed the size range which would be helpful in design of screens for cleaning of the grains. Each variety was studied for particle size distribution of teff grains cultivars and the flours. The particle size distribution of teff grain cultivars and its flour showed significant (P<0.05) differences among the varieties. There were significant (P<0.05) differences among the varieties except dough stability time.
