Determining the Relationships between Seed Yield per Plant and Some Plant Characteristics According to Sowing Dates in Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) Grown in Winter and Summer


1 Çankırı Karatekin Üniversitesi, Fen Fakültesi, Biyoloji Bölümü, Çankırı DOI : 10.21566/tarbitderg.280386 - The aim of this study is to present favourable plant types for winter and summer sowing by determining the relationships between plant seed yields and other characteristics. Field trials were arranged randomized blocks in split plot design with three replications in Tokat conditions in the year 1999-2001. Sowing dates (winter and summer) were located in main plots, varieties in sub-plots. In the study, plant height, first pod height, number of pod per plant, number of seed per plant, total biological yield per plant, seed yield per plant, harvest index per plant and 1000-seed weight were examined. Relationships between seed yield per plant and other characteristics were determined using correlation and path analysis methods according to sowing dates.
