This study was conducted in order to determine the effects of different row spacings (17.5-35.0-52.5 cm) on the seed yield and some other related characteristics of two phacelia varieties (Menemen and Barcelia) under Mediterranean ecological conditions of Izmir,Turkey, in 2006-2007. The experimental design was a randomised complete blocks with four replications. Results indicated that row spacings significantly affected the plant stand, plant height, number of branch and flower per plant, seed yields and other related traits. The highest seed yield was obtained from 17.5 cm row spacing and Barcelia yielded higher than Menemen cv.
