Seven cultivar varieties of Vicia sativa L. were used. Nucleotypic effects of telophase (2C) nuclear DNA amounts on seed weight, percent mitotic index, stomatal frequency/mm^2, chlorophyll a and b content, root growth and shoot growth were determined. No correlation was observed between the DNA contents and the percent mitotic index, chlorophyll a and b content, or root growth of the cultivar varieties. However a significant correlation was observed between DNA content and the seed weight, stomatal frequency and shoot growth of the cultivar varieties.
