Triticale (Triticosecale Wittm.) is more and more of interest for the Romanian farmers, the harvested area being increasing in the last years. In South Romania this is used both for grain yield and biomass, which is more and more of interest as fodder, but also as raw material for producing biogas. The cultivated varieties have to be tested and known as yielding capacity in different growing conditions. The South Romania has favourable conditions for growing triticale. Researches were performed in the agricultural year 2012-2013, in field experiments located in South Romania at Moara Domneasca Experimental Farm (44o30’ N latitude and 26o14’ E longitude). Researches were performed at an assortment of 10 triticale varieties, respectively: Mezin, Stil, Titan, Oda, Negoiu, Cascador, Haiduc, Tulus, Polego, and Gorun 1. The aim of researches that conduced to the elaboration of the present paper was to present the results regarding yield components and grain yield obtained at an assortment of triticale studied under soil and climatic conditions from South Romania.
