Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine changes, similarities/dissimilarities in crop growth types and Onobrychis hajastana Grossh, Onobrychis hypargyrea Boiss, Onobrychis oxyodonta Boiss and Onobrychis viciafolia Scop in sainfoin by conditional formatting and principal component analysis. Sainfoin is known as resistant crop to drought and cold and can be successfully grown in arid conditions including unproductive and barren places. In addition, soil selectivity of it is not high. Sainfoin is not only nutritious crop for cows, calves and goats etc., but also it is well source of nectar for beekeeping. In the light of this explanations, high yield in sainfoin depends on genotypic performance and depends on the activity of metabolic activity. In this activity, the mineral level of the plant is of great importance. Results showed that medium crop growth type gave higher mineral levels. Relatively O. oxyodonta Boiss having higher mineral levels in this study had higher dry matter production and crop yield, it could be said as higher yielding crop. So, P, K, Na, B, Fe, Zn, Ca in minerals were determined as stabile and best contributors to high yield. O. oxyodonta Boiss with medium crop growth types is the best crop for high crop production
