DOI : 10.21566/tarbitderg.281344 Viewed : 942 - Downloaded : 813 This study was conducted in the ecological conditions of Hatay/Turkey in 2009-2011 to determine some phenological and morphological characteristics of faba bean cultivation conducted in 52 fields in 10 districts within the boundaries of the district`s faba bean genotypes. The study was to determine characteristics such as plant height, first pod height, number of pods per plant, pod length, pod seed number, hundred bean weight, grain yield, flowering time, first pod formation time, stomata number, stomata width, stoma length, stomata index and the number of epidermal cells. According to the location, results ranged between 178- 212 cm plant height, first pod height of 23-30 cm, pod number of 23.6-32.1 units, 2.7-4.1 units of seed per pod, a hundred weights of 137-158 g, and 236.1-313.6 kg da-1. To conclude, it was found that ecological factors had a significant effect on varieties and there were differences between plants` growth and development. It is understood that these obtained differences can be used for breeding studies and can be instructive specifically for persistence studies. Keywords : Faba bean, genotype, location, property, yield
