DOI : 10.21566/tarbitderg.282424 Viewed : 316 - Downloaded : 203 This study was carried out to determinate the yield and qualities of some perennial forage genotypes under Kazova-Tokat Ecological conditions in 2013-2014 years. İn this study, 4 smooth brome, 3 crested wheat greass and 3 bird`s foot trefoil were used as plant material. The research was designed according to a randomized block design with four replicates in trial field of Central Black Sea Passage Zone Agricultural Research Institute Directorate. According to the two years, in smooth brome, crested wheat greass and bird`s foot trefoil genotypes, green forage yield (2893.8-3478.0, 1689.9-1793.6, 5216.3-6126.6 kg/da), dry matter yield (1197.2-1394.8, 648.4-704.0, 1250.0-1466.2 kg/da), 1000 seed weight (3.55-4.17, 0.94-1.85, 1.157- 1.173 g), seed yield (144.9-225.7, 65.6-80.6, 28.0-34.7 kg/da), crude protein content (% 11.10-12.18, 11.93- 13.29, 18.94-19.76, crude protein yield (132.8-160.5, 79.34-92.61, 239.9-292.3 kg/da), ADF content (% 32.16-33.32, 34.8-36.2, 30.00-32.30), NDF content (% 49.4-51.7, 53.8-57.5, 39.20-41.80), digestible dry matter content (% 62.9-63.9, 60.7-61.8, 63.7-65.6), digestible dry matter yield (753.3-882.3, 404.0-435.1, 809.5-961.2 kg/da) were ranged based on two years production.
