Abstract

The research was carried out to determine the effects of different doses of nitrogen and zeolite in the hay production of cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata L.) in Erzurum irrigated conditions. The experiment was established in a randomized complete blocks design with three replications according to the factorial arrangement. Four different doses of nitrogen (0, 5, 10 and 15 kg N da-1) and zeolite (0, 50, 100 and 150 kg da-1) were applied in combination. Field trial was established in 2012, the data of 2013 and 2014 were evaluated in the article.

               According to the results of two years of research, nitrogen and zeolite increased dry matter yield. The highest yields were determined at doses of 15 kg N da-1 of nitrogen and 150 kg da-1 of zeolite. Nitrogen has also affected plant height, crude protein, ADF and NDF ratios of hay, and the stand density. However, there was no significant effect of zeolite on other parameters.
