Abstract : Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench.) is a plant species which has been spreading in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the last decade. Because of its brief vegetation period, this crop species is especially interesting for hilly-mountainous regions. In 2015, the experiments were set in three localities (experimental field of the Faculty of Agriculture “Kula”, private economy “Sando” on the Nišići plateau and private economy “Jugović” in Mokro), and two variants of fertilization (control variant – without the use of organic and mineral fertilizers and the use of N60P60K70). The Slovenian sort Darja was used for the experiments. The analysis of seed quality included the following analyses: humidity content (%), mineral matters content (%), protein content, starch content, carbohydrates content. In testing the qualitative characteristics for all localities and fertilizations we determined: 14.2% of humidity in seed, 1.47% of mineral matter in a peeled buckwheat grain, 11.88% of proteins in a peeled buckwheat grain, 51.9% of starch in a peeled buckwheat grain and 71.87% of carbohydrates.
