In this paper are presented the research results regarding the influence of the seeding distance between rows of 6,25 cm, 12,5 cm, 15 cm and 18 cm upon the yield obtained during the experimental period 2007-2009 on a carbonate alluvial gley soil from Lunca Muresului (Mures Meadow). The results show that the optimal seeding distances are those of 6,25 cm and of 12,5 cm, the yield differences between the two variants being insignificant. By increasing the distance between rows to 15 cm respectively 18 cm the yield very significantly decreased. As referring to the influence of the seeding depth upon the sprouted plant percentage it results that, depending on the variety, the percentage were of 10-13% for a seeding depth of 4 cm, of 15-18% for a seeding depth of 8 cm and of 20-24% for a seeding depth of 8 cm.
