In this study, the effects of rooted offshoot properties and number of GA_3 applications, 30 ppm in concentration, on the early and total yield of the globe artichoke cv "Sakız", produced in one year, were tested. It was determined that when the offshoots, which were at the vegetative growth stage, were used in plantation, higher early and total yields were obtained than that of the generative growth stage. This positive result gained with offshoots at the vegetative stage was also improved significantly with all GA_3 applications, 30 ppm in concentration when compared with untreated plants. Double GA_3 application gave better results than a single application only for early yield.
