Forage pea is an annual forage legume with wide adaptability and its seed, silage, and hay are used as animal feed. The aim of the study was to determine the seed yield of five cultivars of forage pea (Arda, Ateş, Taşkent, Töre and Özkaynak) cultivated for winter in Kayseri conditions. Field trials were performed during 2022-2023 growing season. The experiments were conducted to randomized block design with three replications. According to the results, the examined characteristics among the varieties (seed yield, pods per plant, seeds per pod and 1000 seed weight) were statistically significant. The highest seed yield was obtained from the Arda variety with 204 kg/da, followed by Taşkent, Ateş, Töre and Özkaynak cultivars with 190, 185, 166 and 155 kg/da, respectively. The number of pods per plant and the number of seeds per pod varied between 6.33-13 pod/plant and 3.43-5.10 seed/pod with the highest being Arda and the lowest being Özkaynak. In terms of thousand seed weight, the highest value was obtained from the Özkaynak variety with 151 g, and the lowest value was obtained from the Ateş variety with 88.30 g. In conclusion, in terms of seed yield, Arda and Taşkent cultivars are recommended in Kayseri ecological conditions.
