This research was carried out to determine the appropriate sowing density in camelina in Tokat ecological conditions. The study was carried out using Ames 26680 camelina genotype in 2016 and 2017 for two years. In this study, 10, 20, 30 and 40 cm row spacings were used. Plant height (cm), number of branches per, number of capsules per plant, number of seed / capsule, thousand seed weight (g), seed yield (kg/da), oil ratio (%) and oil yield (kg/da) were investigated. According to the results, the seed yields of the two years were significantly different. The highest yields were obtained from 20 cm (132,0 kg/da) in 2016 and from 40 cm row spacing (130,6 kg/da) in 2017. As the average of two years, yields from 20, 30 and 40 cm row spacings did not differ significantly. As the average of two years, the oil rate was 36,2% and the oil yield was 43 kg/da. Thus, it is concluded that in fall sowing under Tokat conditions, camelina can be sown in 20 to 40 cm row spacing using 10 kg seed per hectare.
