Özet

This study was conducted at the Cukurova University research farm as a main crop in 2013 and 2014 in Adana, Turkey. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of twin row planting pattern and plant densities on yield and yield components of peanut. The experimental design was a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. Halisbey (Virginia type) variety was used as a plant material in this research. The planting pattern was used as twin-row and conventional single-row. The row spacing was 70 x 25 x 70 cm, 75 x 25 x 75 cm and 80 x 25 x 80 cm for twin-row planting pattern and 70 cm for single-row pattern. Intra-row spacing of 10, 15 and 20 cm was arranged for different plants population. According to a two-year average, the highest pods yield (7833.6 kg ha(-1)) was obtained from 70 x 25 x 70 x 10 cm (21.05 plants m(-1)) twin-row planting pattern while the yield was 6688.8 kg ha(-1) in single-row planting pattern as 70 x 15 cm (9.43 plants m(-1)). The yield increase was 17.86% in 70x25x70x10, 16.70% in 75x25x75x10 and 15.79% in 80x25x80x10 twin-row pattern, compared with traditional single-row planting pattern.
