DOI : 10.21566/tarbitderg.366375 - This research was carried out in years 2014 and 2015 to determine of the yield and quality properties of some confectionery sunflower genotypes in Tokat-Kazova conditions. Twenty genotypes (11-TRC -022, 10-TRC-027, 09-TRC-004, Palancı-1, TTAE-CRZ-13-9, TTAE-CRZ-13-12, TTAE-CRZ-13-15, TTAE-CRZ -13-6, TTAE-CRZ-13-14, Aybak-2013-13-DAC130100, Aybak-2013-12-DAC13099, Aybak-2013-17- DAC130104, Aybak-2013-6-DAC13093, Aybak-2013-20-DAC130107, Aybak-2013-32-DAC130119, 703, 412, Baklan/Denizli, Karakeçili/Kırıkkale ve Inegöl Alası) were evaluated regarding their biomass production. Plant height, number of leaf, head diameter, stem diameter, achenes per head, 1000 achene weight, achene yield, grain size, grain length, shell ratio, kernel ratio, hectoliter weight and oil ratio were recorded. Significant differences among genotypes were found for all investigated traits except for stem diameter and oil ratio. The highest achene yields were obtained from Aybak-2013-13-DAC130100 (529 kg/da), Baklan/ Denizli (573 kg/da), Karakeçili/Kırıkkale (538 kg/da) and Inegöl Alası (545 kg/da) in the successive two years. According to the research results, Baklan/Denizli population is suitable for all its characteristics and has the highest seed yield. Therefore, it can be recommended for Tokat-Kazova conditions.
