Yabancı kökenli keten (Linum usitatissium l.) çeşit ve populasyonlarının bazı bitkisel özellikleri
This study was carried out at the experimental field of Field Crops Department, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Ankara in 1996. İn this study, both 215 flax varieties, lines and populations obtained from abroad were used as materials. This study was designed as completly randomized bloks in three replicates. Each variety and population was sown in 2.0 m length of single rows and sowing was carried out by hand in 30 cm sowing distance. Materials were analyzed by Principle Component Analysis for 13 characters. According to the results of this research; seed yield per plant, stem yield per plant, branch number per plant, number of capsule per plant, tillering, the weight of the 1000 seed and capsule length were found as the main characters for Principle Component 1, number of capsules per plant, plant height, branch number per plant, tillering, first branching height and stem yield per plant were found as the main characters for Principle Component 2, stem yield, plant height, first branching height, seed yield and number of seed per capsule were found as the main characters for Principle Component 3. Wide variations were observed among plant height, first branching height, branch number per plant, number of capsule per plant, seed yield and stem yield studies.
