Chickpea, cultivar, yield and yield components.


This study was conducted to determine cultivars which grown at Van ecological conditions and their some important agricultural and plant properties in 2013 summer season in Van. In the study was used 14cultivars which officially registered such as Yaşa-05, Hisar, Azkan, Işık-05, Seçkin, İnci, Diyar-95, Taek, Çağatay, Hasanbey, Aksu, Çakır, Zühal, Ilgaz. The trial was conducted by using randomized complete blocks design with the three replications. In the study were investigated plant height, first pod height, numbers of branches, numbers of pod per plant and numbers of seed per plant, numbers of seed per pod, seed yield per unit area, harvest index, biological yield, 100 seed weight, protein and oil ratio in seed. While the highest seed yield per area was obtained from Işık-05 varieties with 98.65 kg/da, but the difference with Yaşa-05 and Çağatay varieties was not statistically significant, the lowest seed yield per area was obtained from İnci varieties with 60.20 kg da-1.
