Oat, yield, biplot graph, correlation analysis


This study was conducted to determine the grain yield, yield components and quality characteristics of 15 oat cultivars in Düzce province in the 2021-2022 growing season. The experiment was established in a randomized complete block design with three replications In this study, oat cultivars were examined panicle length, grain number per panicle, grain weight per panicle, thousand kernel weight, test weight, groat percentage and grain yield. According to the results, the average panicle length ranged from 13.23 to 20.83 cm, grain number per panicle ranged from 37.83 to 86.83, grain weight per panicle ranged from 0.96 to 2.75 g, thousand kernel weight ranged from 19.86 to 42.36 g, test weight ranged from 43.45 to 60.08 kg hl-1, groat percentage ranged from 74.2% to 100.0%, and grain yield varied between 201.4 and 414.8 kg da-1. According to the biplot graph, the analysis indicated that grain yield had a positive relationship with panicle length, grain number per panicle, and grain weight per panicle, while having a negative relationship with test weight and groat percentage. Correlation analysis revealed a positive relationship between grain yield and the number of grains per panicle, grain number per panicle, grain weight per panicle, thousand kernel weight, and test weight, while it had a negative relationship with groat percentage and panicle length.
