Growing Possibilities of Some Forage Legumes Direct Sowing on Stubble After Wheat Harvest in Konya Ecological Region

İrfan Özer, İhsan Özkaynak


About 3-monthly period after wheat harvest in Konya Province is free with respect to farming. This research has been conducted to determine the growing possibilities of forage legumes by direct sowing on stubbles as a second crop after wheat harvested field and theirs yield and quality properties on the Research and Applied Station of Faculty of Agricul­ture of Selçuk University. This research which carried out on the irrigated conditions was arranged ‘randomized block’ experimental design with four replications and Field pea (D - 10) (Pisum arvense L.), Common vetch (5860-81/1) (Vicia sativa L.), and Berseem clover (Trifolium alexandrinum L.) forage legumes species were used. As the experiment subjects, plant height, green yield, hay yield, dry matter yield, crude protein ratio and crude protein yield were examined in this plant species.The highest plant height (58.0 cm), green yield (2297.3 kg da-1), hay yield (44.8 kg da-1), dry matter yield (485.0 kg da-1), and crude protein yield (89.3 kg da-1) in the plots of Common vetch, and the highest crude protein ratio (20.25%) in the plots of field pea were observed among the species of forage legumes.
