The experiment consisted of three single row spacings (every 25, 40 and 50 cm) and four double and triple row spacings (40-25-40 cm, 40-25-25-40 cm, 50-25-50 cm, 50-25-25- 50 cm). The aim of the present experiment was to compare the influence of varying spacing on yields and quality of chamomile seeds. Among the row spacings under comparison, the highest seed and herb yields were achieved from the triple row spacing. 1000-seed weight was proportional to seed yield, and the seed germination
