AbstractEspecially in aqueous conditions, where the ground water level is high or when grain crops alternation with cotton plant, saddle planting system is useful because this system reduce costs in Southeastern Anatolia Region near Syria and Iraq. This planting system is going common in farm condition in our region. Total of 8 durum wheat varieties were compared by using traditional planting and saddle planting methods in Diyarbakir ecological conditions in 2010-2011 production season. Acording to the combined analysis, significant differences were determined at the level of 1% and 5%, in terms of sowing methods, genotype and genotype x planting methods interactions in terms of grain yield, test weight and thousand of grain weight. The combined analysis on the data of different planting method; genotype, planting method and genotype x planting method interactions were significant at the level of 1 to 5%. According to analysis on planting methods, grain yield changed between 7430-7950 kg / ha-1, test weight between 80.9 -81.1 g and thousand of grain weight between 44.7-47.1 g. According to results; grain yield and hektoliter weight were high in conventional method of planting. Saddle planting system, in irrigation, weed struggle, disease, pest management, harvesting operations can be made more comfortable. Acording to result of this study, depending on the conditions (alternation planting cotton, irrigated areas, or the price of seed is high ) suggest that saddle planting system can be applied successfully in wheat cultivation.
