Abstract

KAYAN, Nihal, 2008. Variation for yield components in two winter sown lentil cultivars (Lens culinaris Medic.). Bulg. J. Agric. Sci., 14: 460-465

This study was carried out at the experimental field of Agricultural Faculty of Eskisehir Osmangazi University, Eskisehir, Turkey in 2006-2007. Variation in yield components of two lentil cultivars (Kayi-91 and Sazak-91) were investigated. The mean values recorded for Kayi 91 were better than Sazak 91. Positive and highly significant correlations determined for the characteristics.The regressions for harvest index, the grain yield per plant and biological yield per plant with root dry weight were possitive.

Key words: lentil, yield components, correlation, regression
