The objective of our study was to examine the effect of different fertilization treatments and seed size on the germination percentage of two triticale varieties. The held experiment was set on the area of Cereal Research Non-Profit Ltd. in Fülöpszállás, in four replications. The soil was meadow soil, its nutrient content was good. There were ten different fertilizer treatments. We porcessed the obtained data by analysis of variance. The nutrient supply did not have significant effect on the germination percentage. The maximum germination percentage of GK Szemes was obtained in the N0PK30 treatment. GK Idus reached the highest germination percentage in the N30PK.0 and N0PK90 treatments. We studied the effect of seed size on the germination percentage, too. After the harvesting we divided the seeds into three groups. The first group contains seeds smaller than 2.2 mm, the second group is for grains between 2.2-2.8 mm, and the third one for grains bigger than 2.8 mm. Along with the growing grain size, the germination percentage was also improving. In the case of GK Idus the germination percentage difference between the highest and lowest seed size was statistically justified.
