Abstract : The results of the examination of sowing density and meteorological conditions on productive traits of several genotypes of winter triticale are presented in this paper. The examination was conducted in the vicinity of Bijelo Polje, in the northern part of Montenegro in the period 2009-2012. The experiment, set in randomized block system with three replications included five varieties of winter triticale (Odysseus, Kg-20, Triumph, Rtanj and Tango) and two sowing rates (density) – 600 and 800 germinated seeds per m-2. Common agronomical practices were used in the experiment, with the application of NPK fertilizer combinations 60:80:80. The following parameters were assessed: the number of grains per spike, 1000 grain weight, hectoliter weight and grain yields of triticale. The results of the examination showed significant differences in reproductive traits of winter triticale, depending on the variety, sowing density and weather conditions in the years of research. Variety Tango had the highest average grain yield (5610.0 kg ha-1) and 1000 grain weight (48.4 g), while Kg-20 had the lowest grain yield (4465.6 kg ha-1). Variety Odysseus had the highest number of grains per spike (38.5), while the highest value of hectoliter weight was determined in variety Triumph. Significantly higher yields were achieved by applying higher sowing density in comparison to the standard application of lower sowing density. The results of the examination showed that the demonstrated differences of observed parameters of the varieties which were included in this examination are the results of the specificity of varieties, of agro technical practices and climatic conditions in the years of study.
