This research was conducted in order to present the performance evaluation of wheat seeding machinery under soil cultivated and uncultivated conditions of production in Tekirdag province. In the trial stub runner and hoe type furrow opener seeding machinery are used. From the trial, it is conducted that the seeding machinery performance used in uncultivated areas is lower. Particularly, there is a fall in productivity and plant growing in stub runner seeding machinery. Although in uncultivated area planting with hoe type seeding machinery, the plant growing proportion is less than soil cultivated areas ; thus it is advisable as it has approximate values when it's evaluated referring to the productivity.

Key words: soil cultivated and uncultivated conditions, seeding machinery, productivity
Abbreviations: q20 = the quantity of seed in 20 rotation of machine wheel, kg; D = diame ter of wheel, m; B = breed of work; Q = quality of planting, kg/da; Mec.= mechanical; Pneuma.= pneumatical
