This study has been conducted out to determine of suitable line cultivars for Van ecological conditions in 2002-2003. In the research established with 3 repetitions according to random blocks experimental pattern, 11 different linen cultivars; (Antares, San-85, Linda, Flanders, Atalanta, Norman, McGregor, Dakota, Raulin, Mikael and Royal) have been evaluated in terms of yield and yield elements. In the research, the qualities of plant height, number of main branches, number of capsules in plant, number of seeds in capsule, initial branch height, 1000 seed weight, seed yield, protein ratio, lipid ratio and lipid yield have been examined. At the end of the research, statistically significant differences were found between linen cultivars in terms of examined properties in both experiment years. In the study, the highest seed (141.7-149.0 kg/da) and lipid (49.8-50.8 kg/da) yield were obtained from Linda linen cultivar in both experiment years.
