A total of 15 oats (Avena sativa L.) cultivars were used as research material. The trial was established in three replications according to the Randomized Blocks Experimental Design. Significant differences were obtained between the varieties regarding all characteristics such as days to heading, thousand grain weight, plant height, weight of grain per panicle, hectoliter weight, the number of panicles per square meter, protein content, grain yield, harvest index and lodging. The lowest and the highest grain yield were obtained from BC Marta (211.3 kg da-1) and Albatros (501.5 kg da-1) varieties in the Tokat-Kazova location, whereas the highest grain yield and the lowest grain yield were obtained from Sari (436.9 kg da-1) and Haskara (214.8 kg da-1) varieties in Samsun-Havza location, respectively. On the other hand, the highest grain protein content was obtained from Kahraman (13.98%) cultivar in Tokat-Kazova location and Faikbey (14.12%) cultivar in Samsun-Havza location. According to the obtained data; Albatros in Tokat-Kazova location and Faikbey variety in Samsun- Havza location became prominent in terms of yield and quality. Keywords : Oat, variety, quality, yield
