Özet

This research was carried out in the ecological conditions of the Pamukova district of the Sakarya province between November 2013-July 2016, in order to determine the seed yield and some yield properties of the tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) plant sown at different row spacings and with different fertilization doses. The experiment was conducted in the randomized block design with 4 different (0, 10, 20 and 30 g m(-2)) fertilizer doses and at 2 different row spacings (20 and 40 cm). The highest lodging rate, plant height, panicle length, number of generative shoots and seed yield values were observed in the 20 cm row spacing and 30 g m(-2) fertilizer dose; while greatest hectolitre weight was seen in the 20 cm row spacing and 10 g m(-2) fertilizer dose, and highest weight of seed per panicle, 1000 seed weight and germination rate values were obtained in the 40 cm row spacings and 30 g m(-2) fertilizer dose.
