In this research, 5 crimson clover varieties were used as material. The means of plant heights of crimson clover varieties were recorded between 37.18 cm (Tombolo) - 23.77 cm (Ostsaat). Forage Yield of varieties were found 2127.01 kg/da (Tombolo) - 1352.90 kg/da (Dixie). The means of hay yield in crimson clover varieties were varied between 429.76 kg/da (Trincat) - 303.33 kg/da (Dixie). Dry matter yield of varieties were obtained between 389.22 kg/da (Trincat) - 242.76 kg/da (Dixie). Crude protein ratio and crude protein yield per decare were found between 17.38% (Poppelsdorfer) - 11.42% (Trincat), and 56.82 (Poppelsdorfer) - 30.88 (Dixie), in order. Keywords : Crimson clover; Trifolium incarnatum L.; forage yield; crude protein ratio
