YIELD AND ITS COMPONENTS IN FIELD PEA (Pisum arvense L.) LINES
2003, 4 (4) p. 313-318
Morphological characters such as main stem length (cm), number of branches per plant, leaf length (cm), number of leaves per main stem, number of leaflets per leaf, diameter of main stem (mm), pods / main stem and seeds / pod as well as agricultural herbage yield (t ha-1), dry matter yield (t ha-1), seed yield (t ha-1), crude protein (%) were investigated in Trakya, during the 1999-2002. The maximum main stem length (124.375 cm), leaf length (24.808 cm), number of pods per main stem (16.526), herbage yield (27.881 t ha-1), dry matter yield (7.319 t ha-1) and seed yield (2.590 t ha-1) were determined from the 16-K and 16-DY field pea lines. K line has given higher values than four lines for the number of branches per plant (5.567). Main stem diameter ranged from 3.077 to 4.300 mm. It’s found that the 23.025 leaves/main stem, 6.833 leaflets/leaf, 7.692 seeds/pod and 17.550% crude protein from the field pea lines.
