Durum wheat was sown with fertilized (6 kg N/da) and non-fertilized (0 kg N/da) after ten different treatments which are hairy vetch, triticale, safflower, stubble+stalk addition, vetch+triticale mixture, winter lentil, common vetch, summer lentil, traditional fallow (late March) and late fallow (late June). As a result, durum wheat grown especially after hairy vetch was showed better results, followed by common vetch and traditional fallow while the lowest results were obtained from durum wheat sown after triticale and winter lentil. In addition, higher values were obtained with 6 kg N/da fertilizing at all yield and quality parameters except semolina yield. Keywords : Green manuring, organic matter, durum wheat, yield, quality
