The effects of 4 seeding rates (20, 40, 80 and 160 kg ha^{-1}) on dry matter yield, seed yield and yield components were evaluated in 4 accessions (L46, L79, L457, Local) of Hungarian vetch (Vicia pannonica Crantz.) under fall seeding conditions during the 2000-2001 and 2001-2002 crop years. Dry matter yield, plant height, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per plant, 1000- seed weight, biomass yield, seed yield and harvest index were measured. Based on the 2-year results, no significant differences were found among Hungarian vetch accessions in any of the measured characteristics with the exception of 1000- seed weight. However, seeding rates significantly affected dry matter, seed yield and most of the yield components. High seeding rates resulted in greater dry matter and seed yield than the low seeding rates in both years.
