Abstract: Hazelnut is economicly grown horticultural crops in Black Sea region and its shells are used as combustibles in the area. This research is conducted to determine the possibilities of using hazelnut shells for P. sajor-caju (Fr.) Singer production. As the result of review in which 7 different media including hazelnut shells were examined.
