This research was conducted in the “Randomized Complete Block Design” with three replications in research field of Agricultural Faculty, Selcuk University, Konya, Turkey. In study, a total of 16 safflower promised lines (A13, A22, A29, A30, C8, C12, E4, E12, F5, G8, G12, H3, J26, J27, Y1-8-14-1), which were collected from Konya natural vegetation, and 5 cultivars (Remzibey, Black Sun1, Black Sun2, KS 06 and KS 07) were evaluated in two growing seasons (2009 and 2010). According to the results, the highest first branch height, number of branch, number of head and 1000 seed weight were obtained respectively from J27 (31.77 cm), G12 (8.47 cm), G1 (225.58 number plant-1) and A29 (49.25 g) lines. The highest seed yield, oil content and oil yield were taken from Remzibey cultivar (2048.7 kg ha-1), Black Sun1 (34.41 %) and Black Sun1 (579.3 kg ha-1) cultivars while the lowest values were obtained from C8 (845.6 kg ha-1), A30 (21.79 %) and J27 (200.9 kg ha-1) lines.

Key words: Adaptation, cluster, safflower
