Field experiments were conducted during the winter seasons of 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 in the Black Sea coastal area in the north of Turkey, to study the effect on yield responses of common vetch (Vicia sativa L.) of the following: Row spacing (17.5 and 35 cm) and seeding rates (60, 80, 100 and 120 kg ha-1). The row spacing and seeding rate had a significant effect on most of the measured traits and the yield components. In general, for high forage yield 17.5 cm row spacing and 100 kg ha-1 seeding rate, for high seed yield 35 cm row spacing and 100 kg ha-1 seeding rate can be recommended similar ecological conditions.
