The research was conducted to determine the effects of different soil moisture contents (I-100 full irrigation-S-1, I-88: 88% of full irrigation-S-2, I-76: 76% of full irrigation- S-3, I-64: 64% of full irrigation-S-4 and I-52: 52% of full irrigation-wilting point-S-5) and seed priming ((hidropriming, 30 and 60 ppm GA(3)) on germination and seedling growing. The species of Soyer-2002 bread wheat and cildir-2002 barley was used as cultivars. Generally, effect on examined characteristics of GA(3) were positived, and it was decreased to beginning germination periods, germination periods 50% and average germination periods, and increased to seedling height and germination index in both species. Research results in 30 ppm GA(3) treatment were higher than 60 ppm GA(3). While the highest results in wheat was determined in S-2 and S-3 moisture contents, the highest results in barley was obtained from Simoisture content.
