The aim of this study was to examine the feasibility of growing five annual forage legume crops in the rotation system with second crops in the province of Antalya. In addition the straw and seed yield of the crops were determined when planted in the fall season. Chicling vetch, field pea, fenugreek, persian clover and berseem were planted. The experiment was conducted in the years 1994-1996 with three replications. The flowering day, seed and straw yield, maturity time and harvesting date were determined. It was concluded that all the planted species were feasible in terms of seed and straw yield. The findings of the experiment also reveal that the planted species gave enough time for second. However, field pea, fenugreek and chicling vetch were found to be superior.
