Abstract

The main sources of human nutrition are plant and animal foods. The world population is increasing day by day and the demand for basic foodstuffs is increasing depending on this increase. In order to fulfill this increasing demand, the producers are in search of new products that can be substituted for the existing products and to obtain more products from the unit area. For this purpose, synthetic fertilizers, hormones and pesticides are used unconsciously. These unconscious practices have increased the importance of sustainability and organic production in agricultural production. In this study; phacelia plant, which has the potential to be an alternative to forage plants, has a wide growing area and offers different usage possibilities, was used. Phacelia, Latin Phacelia tanacetifolia Bentham, is an annual plant belonging to the Hydrophyllaceae family and is the most common type of cultivation. The study was carried out with Sağlamutimur variety planted under organic conditions in the Çubuk district of Ankara. In the results of studying; average first flowering time 56,88 days, staying in flower 28.22 days, plant height 42.66 cm, fresh yield 1608.77 kg/ha, hay yield 366.55 kg/ha, seed yield 56.55 kg/ha, thousand grain weight 2.31 kg/da, crude nitrogen rate was 2.31%, crude ash rate was 10.23%.
