  • Determination of Energy Use Efficiency and Greenhouse Gas Emission (GHG)
           of Cotton Cultivation in Batman Province: A Case Study from Beşiri
           District

    • Authors: Mehmet Fırat Baran; Osman Gökdoğan
      Abstract: In this research, the energy use efficiency (EUE) and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) of cotton cultivation in Beşiri district of Batman province in Turkey were determined. This research was conducted through face-to-face surveys with 64 farms selected by simple random sampling method in the 2018-2019 cultivation season. The energy input (EI) and energy output (EO) in cotton cultivation were calculated as 52,302.62 MJ/ha and 60,341.03 MJ/ha. Energy inputs consist of electricity energy with 19,948.86 MJ/ha(38.14%), chemical fertilizers energy with 14,163.83 MJ/ha (27.08%), diesel fuel energy with 13,218.49 (25.27%), irrigation water energy with 2563.79 MJ/ha(4.90%), machinery energy with 1071.14 MJ/ha(2.05%), chemicals energy with 797.96 MJ/ha (1.53%), seed energy with 291.46 MJ/ha (0.56%) and human labour energy with 247.09 MJ/ha(0.47%), respectively. Total energy inputs in cotton cultivation can be categorized as 68.79% direct, 31.21% indirect, 5.93% renewable and 94.07% non-renewable. EUE, specific energy (SE), energy productivity (EP) and net energy (NE) in cotton cultivation were calculated as 1.15, 10.23 MJ/kg, 0.10 kg /MJ and 8038.41 MJ/ ha, respectively. Total GHG was calculated as 3742.59 kgCO2-eq ha-1 for cotton cultivation with the greatest share taken by nitrogen (26.19%). Nitrogen was followed by electricity (24.73%), irrigation water (18.48%), diesel fuel (17.31%), seed (5.04%), chemicals (2.93%), phosphorous (2.74%), human labour (2.36%), potassium (0.19%) and machinery (0.03%), respectively. GHG ratio value was calculated as 0.73 kgCO2-eq kg-1 in cotton cultivation.

  • Effects of Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria on Growth, Yield and Fruit
           Quality of Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.)

    • Authors: Osman Acar; Lütfi Pırlak, Mesude Figen Dönmez
      Abstract: This study was carried out in a commercial pomegranate garden in Denizli, in 2017-2018 in order to determine the effects of Pseudomonas sp. HV 5 and Micrococcus luteus GC- subgroup B MFDV3 bacterial strains, which are potentially capable of improving plant yield and development, on plant growth, yield and quality. The effects of bacterial application on shoot diameter, fruit width, fruit size, fruit juice content, pH, acidity and yield per tree were statistically in significant but the effects on fruit weight, fruit volume and fruit juice C vitamins were found to be significant. Concomitant use of HV5 and MFDV3 bacteria resulted in increased fruit weight, volume, and amount of vitamin C in fruit juice compared to control. According to the results of the research, it was concluded that the bacterial strains used had a positive effect on fruit juice and vitamin C only, so that different application forms and doses should be tested.

  • Doublehaploidization Efficiency of Selected Pepper Genotypes Via in Vitro
           Anther Culture

    • Authors: Münevver İlhan; Ertan Sait Kurtar
      Abstract: This study was carried out to determine the effects of genotype and media on haploid plant formation of 12 pepper genotypes (Capsicum annuum L.) via in vitro anther culture. The buds were cultured in 2 different media (O1 and O2) and, the results revealed that the media had effects on the development of anthers, embryo and plantlet initiation. When the anther developmental status is examined, the lowest value was obtained from the SU-31 genotype with 2.47%, while cv. Flinta F1 produced the highest rate with 12.79%. The highest growth rates were obtained from the O2 medium, and the cv. Dolphin variety produced a remarkable result with 25.0% in this medium. The cultivar Dolphin was the favorable genotypes with 8 embryos and 5 plants, while no embryo and plant were obtained from cv. Flinta F1 and SU-34. A total of 2868 anthers were cultured, 195 anthers were enlarged and the growth rate was 6.8%. Finally, 37 embryos and 18 plants were obtained and the frequencies were 1.29% and 0.63%, respectively. As a result of stomatal observations, 13 plants were detected haploid and the others were double haploid.

  • Effect of Salt Doses on Biological Values in Durum Wheat

    • Authors: Neslihan Doruk Kahraman; Sabri Gökmen
      Abstract: This research was carried out to determine the response of some durum wheat cultivars to salt stress during the germination stage. In the study, in which 11 durum wheat varieties, which are widely produced in different regions of Turkey, were used, 3 g l-1 and 6 g l-1 doses of NaCl were applied in addition to the distilled water application. In the research, germination rate, germination power, root length, shoot length, fresh and dry weight properties were investigated. The study was carried out according to the Factorial Experiment Design in Random Plots under laboratory conditions. Statistically significant differences were found between cultivars and salt doses, except for fresh and dry weight, in terms of all traits examined.  Additionally, variety x salt dose interactions were found as important in terms of other characteristics except for dry weight. The highest germination rate, germination power and dry weight were determined in Altıntaş-95, highest root length in Eminbey and highest fresh weight Yelken varieties. Except for and dry weight, other properties were significantly reduced with increasing salt dose.

  • Examination of Milk Samples, obtained from the Different Cattle breeds in
           the First Lactation, by Means of Discriminant Analysis

    • Authors: Mümine Işık; İsmail Keskin
      Abstract: By means of discriminant analysis, it can be identified which class the individuals (data) desired to be classified. In this study, it was aimed to identify that the milk samples belong to which breed, applying discriminant analysis to the milk samples taken from the cattle breeds (19 heads of Jersey, 53 heads of Holstein and 27 heads of Charolaise) in the first lactation. As a conclusion of the study, proper classification actualized in the rate, which can be considered quite high like 90.6%, according to the milk components (fat, protein, lactose, density, pH and conductivity) of Holstein Cattles. This rate actualized as 63.2% in Jersey and 25.9% in Charolaise. It was identified that the rate of general classification of non-linear analysis, used in discriminating Holstein, Jersey and Charolaise breeds from their milk components, was 67.7%.

  • Inhibitory Effect of Oregano and Laurel Essential Oils and Their Main
           Com-ponents on Seed Germination of Some Weed and Crop Species

    • Authors: Nihat Tursun; Ali Arda Işıkber, Mehmet Hakkı Alma, Ayşe Usanmaz Bozhüyük
      Abstract: The essential oils from oregano (Origanum syriacum L.) and laurel (Laurus nobilis L.), and their main components, namely, carvacrol, 1,8-cineole and α-pinene, were tested to determine their inhibitory effects on the seed germinations of three different weeds [redroot amaranth (Amaranthus retroflexus L.), wild licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra L.), curled dock (Rumex crispus L.) and cutleaf ground-cherry (Physalis angulata L.)] and three crops [(wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), corn (Zea mays L.) and cotton (Gossypium hirsitum L.)].  Gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy (GC-MS) analysis showed that 1,8-cineole and carvacrol were the major components of laurel and oregano essential oils, respectively. An in-vitro bioassay seed germination test showed that oregano essential oil and carvacrol completely inhibited the germination of weeds at all the concentrations ranging from 1 to 5 µl/Petri dish, while seed germination of test weeds significantly decreased with increasing of the concentrations of laurel essential oil and its main components, 1,8-cineol and α-pinene ranging from 5 to 20 µl/Petri dish. Oregano essential oil and carvacrol were totally ineffective on cotton and corn germination (except for the concentration of 5 µl/Petri dish of cavracrol), whereas they had a strong inhibitory activity against wheat seeds. On the other hand, the laurel essential oil and its main component, 1,8-cineole, showed less selective action on test crop species. It could be concluded that volatile oil from O. syriacum and its main component, cavracrol, possessed a strong inhibitory effect on germination of the weeds and was totally selective action on some crops, and could be utilized as bioherbicide for future weed management programmes.

  • Modeling Soil Profile Salinity with HYDRUS-1D

    • Authors: Sertan Avcı; Engin Yurtseven
      Abstract: Salt accumulation within the root zone significantly effects plant growth and development in arid and semi-arid regions. Today, use of low-quality irrigation water in agricultural production is increasing rapidly, because of continuous depletion and pollution of water resources. This means more salt transferred to the soil profile. It is of great importance to predetermine the effects of irrigation practices for sustainable crop production. For this purpose, models and tools that can produce reliable and fast results should be used.In this study, soil profile salinity was modeled with the HYDRUS-1D software. In present study, Three different irrigation water salinity levels (S1=0.25 – control/municipal tap water, S2=1.5, S3=3.0 dS m-1) and 4 different irrigation volumes (leaching ratio) (LR1=10%, LR2= 20%, LR3=35%, LR4=50%) were modeled in a randomized plots factorial experimental design with 3 replications. Each treatment was carried out in individual PVC lysimeters with a length of 115 cm and a diameter of 40 cm in open-field to determine the efficiency of the model at different salinity levels and leaching rates. Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) was preferred as a plant due to its economic value, effective root depth and being a perennial plant. During the growing period, a total of 7 irrigations were practiced and five soil samples were taken from 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 cm depths at the last day of each month.Present findings revealed that values modeled with the HYDRUS-1D software were sufficient to determine the soil profile salinity. Relative error values (RE) ranged from 0.048 to 0.307. Increase in salinity and irrigation applications reduced the accuracy of the model. However, it can be said that the values produced by the model were sufficient even under the mentioned conditions. Especially for academic studies, the HYDRUS-1D software can be used to obtain fast and reliable results.

  • The Use of Different Waste Mulch Materials Against Weeds Which are
           Problems in Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) Cultivation

    • Authors: Ayşe Usanmaz Bozhüyük; Ramazan Gürbüz, Harun Alptekin, Haşim Kaycı
      Abstract: Study was carried out in two different locations (L1: Yüzbaşılar village and L2: TUAM (Iğdır University Agricultural Application and Research Center) in 2020 to determine the effect of different waste mulch materials on weed control and tomato yield. In the study, five different mulch materials (tree of heaven, fine sawdust, wood chips, shredded paper and sheep wool) were used. Each plot has weed and weed-free control group. The effects of mulching on weeding, weed dry weight, yield (kg/da), fruit weight (gr) and number of fruit per plant (pieces) were investigated. Three counts were made to determine the weed density in the plots. As a result of the study, a total of 17 weed species belonging to 9 families were determined in the experimental areas. As a result of the counts, it was observed that Sorghum halepense L., Convolvulus arvensis L. and Xanthium strumarium L. weeds emerged the most in the plots where the mulch materials were laid. Depending on the location, the lowest density among the weed density counts was obtained from the paper plots. In the study, the lowest average weed dry weight among the mulch materials was paper (L1: 97.63; L2: 73.12 gr/m2), the highest average was tree of paradise (L1: 191.87; L2: 165.27 gr/m2) plots. As a result of the study, the best results in tomato yield (L1: 6.078.50; L2: 6.807.87 kg/da) and fruit weight (L1: 142.67; L2: 147.35 gr)) were obtained in the use of paper mulch. The highest number of fruits per plant was obtained in the use of wood chips (L1: 45.774.83/ pieces) and tree of heaven leaves (L2: 46.627.41/pieces). The fact that mulch applications give better results than control groups suggests that mulches will be much more beneficial for controlling weeds and improving fruit yield and quality.

  • The Effects of Ortho Silicone Applications on the Acclimatization Process
           of Grapevine Rootstocks

    • Authors: Zeki Kara; Kevser Yazar, Heydem Ekinci, Osman Doğan, Ayşe Özer
      Abstract: Micropropagation is a tool for large-scale reproduction of planting material for viticulture sustainability. Successful micropropagation depends on the continued productivity of plantlets during the acclimatization phase. Due to high humidity in the culture container and free water in the environment, it causes rapid water loss and drying of plantlets with watery stems and leaves, poorly developed cuticle, large intercellular space, and incomplete stomata. Acclimatization of in vitro grown plantlets is often difficult. Silicon is gaining in importance as a useful tool in coping with multiple stress factors in different plant species, due to its contribution to the formation of the cuticle of plants, its mechanical resistance to biotic and abiotic stress, and its contribution to the flow of water through stomata and plant surfaces. In this study, the effects of 500 and 1000 µL ortho silicon applications at the acclimatization stage on in vitro propagated plantlets of 41B, 110R and Fercal grapevine rootstocks were evaluated by examining their survival rates. In the in vitro propagation process, rooting rates were listed as Fercal (64%) and 110R (32%) and 41B (28%) according to rootstocks, while root numbers were listed as Fercal (11.8), 41B (8.5), 110R (3.6). Genotypic differences were determined in the effects of silicon on plantlets in the acclimation process. In 110R and Fercal control plantlets, all plantlets were lost during acclimatization. Of the plantlets treated with 1000 µL SiO2, 110R 66% Fercal 88% and in 41B, the control, 500 and 1000 µL SiO2 applied plantlets survived 100%, 66% and 66%, respectively. 1000 µL SiO2 dose was more effective on survival rates than 500 µL applications. In subsequent studies, it was found that 1000 µL SiO2 applications could be used for practical success in grapevine genotypes that had problems in acclimatization and in other in vitro propagation studies.

  • Reactions of Some Grapevine Rootstock Cuttings to Mutagenic Applications

    • Authors: Zeki Kara; Osman Doğan
      Abstract: Grapevine (Vitis spp.) is one of the most important socio-economically important plants in the global scale, and the need for its breeding is increasing. In viticulture, mutation is more promising than crossbreeding in breeding new genotypes from natural genetic diversity. Polyploid plants outperform their diploid relatives in several respects. In this study, the efficacy of oryzalin and N2O mutagens in the induction of polyploidy was investigated by applying different doses and durations to the forced cuttings of 41B [Chasselas (Vitis vinifera L.) × Vitis berlandieri Planch)] and Fercal [(Vitis vinifera x Vitis berlandieri) × 333 EM] rootstocks. LD50 values of mutagen applications were determined, morphological and cytological effects were examined by macroscopic, microscopic, and cytological methods. Application time and dose increase of mutagens decreased LD50 values. As a result of mutagen applications, leaf thickness and chlorophyll content of the surviving plants increased. Applications increased stomatal sizes, decreased their density, increased chloroplast numbers, increased leaf thicknesses and partially SPAD values. It was determined that they were not polyploid in the confirmation test performed with flow cytometry (FC) analyses in 4 Fercal and 1 41B samples that were assumed to be mutant by stoma and chloroplast examinations. After that, it was thought that it would be appropriate to try vegetative material with actively dividing cells, such as nodal cuttings, in the studies of obtaining polyploid individuals on grapevine rootstocks

           :Anobiidae)] on spice plants and wheat flour

    • Authors: Şükriye küçük Ortaöner; hüseyin Çetin, Fatma Nur Elma
      Abstract: In this study, the development of Lasioderma serricorne (F.) (Coleoptera: Anobiidae) was investigated on five different foods (Mentha piperita, Thymus vulgaris, Salvia officinalis, Rosmarinus, officinalis and flour). Trials were carried out at a temperature of 28±2°C and 70-75% relative humidity. Effects of foods on development adult longevity and egg hatching ratio of Lasioderma serricorne were investigated.  As a result, all of the Lasioderma serricorne larvae left on the Rosmarinus officinalis plant have not completed their development and died. The shortest larval development time was in flour (37.35 days) and the longest in Mentha piperita (62.96 days). The shortest Pupal development time was seen in Salvia officinalis (4 days), while the longest was seen in Thymus vulgaris (4,42 days). Mentha piperita (10,50 days) had the shortest adult longevity and was the longest flour (15,5 days). When the egg development time was examined, it was seen that the shortest time was in Thymus vulgarris (5,42 days) and the longest time was in flour (5,97 days). The rate of larvae that completed its development was highest in flour (92%) and lowest in Salvia officinalis (5%). The rate of pupae that completed its development was highest in flour (80,30%) and lowest in Salvia officinalis (37.50%). In the percentages of hatched eggs, it was observed that the lowest opening was in thyme with 56.27% and the highest opening was in flour with 88.89 %.

  • The Effects of Iron Application Foliarly at Different Times and Amounts on
           Agricultural Characteristics in Some Peanut Varieties

    • Authors: Nursel Çöl Keskin; Gülsüm Kayışoğlu
      Abstract: This study was aimed to determine the effects of treated iron doses on agricultural characteristics by appyling foliar in some peanut varieties (NC-7 and Sultan).   It was conducted at different times (flowering period and pod formation period) and doses (control, 400 kg da -1, 500 kg da -1, 600 kg da-1) in the farmer's field in the Göçmenler district in the Hardallık village of Kadirli, Osmaniye, in April and September of 2020. The study was arranged in a  "Split-Split Plots Experiment Desing" with three replications, and varieties to the main parcels, treatment time to the sub-parcels, iron doses to the sub-sub-parcels, were treated. In the study, variety, dose, varietyxdose, timexdose, varietyxtimexdose interactions were found to be statistically important in pod yield. In terms of number of pod per plant, 100 pod weight, 100 seed weight; varietyxdose, timexdose, varietyxtimexdose interactions are important, however in the seed ratio these interactions turned out to be statistically insignificant except from variety. According to the results obtained, the highest pod yield was obtained as 521.1 kg da-1 from treatments of Sultan varieties in terms of varieties; it was obtained as 544.5 kg da -1 from pod formation period and 400 kg da -1 dose in the terms of varietyxtime interaction and it was obtained as 512.6 kg da -1 from 400 kg da-1treatment in terms of dose. As a result; for both periods in order to achieve high pod yield in peanut cultivation, 400 kg da -1 iron dose treatment and Sultan variety in Osmaniye conditions can be recommended.

    • Authors: Merve Çatlı; Levent Ünlü
      Abstract: The study was carried out during the 2018-2019 growing season under greenhouse conditions to determine the population development and infestation rates of Thrips, Leafhopper species, and Tuta absoluta damaging greenhouse tomatoes in Karatay and Meram (Konya) districts. For this purpose, 10 greenhouses of tomato were selected from the two districts. Delta-type sexual pheromone trap, blue and yellow sticky traps were hung in each greenhouse. The traps were placed in the greenhouses alongside tomato seedlings. The pests caught in these traps were counted weekly and recorded. The infestation rate of 25 plants was selected randomly from each greenhouse and their pest infestation was examined. As a result of this study, Thrips species in the districts were found in the early stage of the plant in blue traps and were recorded to be 29 and7 pests per week in Karatay and Meram respectively. Leaf hooppers species emerged in yellow sticky traps during the last stages of plant phenology; and in 2018-2019, a maximum of 5-4 pests per week was determined, respectively. Tuta absoluta, on the other hand, had a high population at the end of the season; in 2018-2019, a maximum of 636-571 adult pests per week were caught oon the traps, respectively. In 2018-2019, whereas the infestation rate of Thrips and Leafhopper species were 0%, the infestation rate of T. absoluta was 18.66% and 18.76%, respectively.

  • The toxic effects of lead on seedling growth development of Euphorbia
           hirta Forsk (weed) and Sporobolus coromandelianus (Retz.) Kunth (true
           grass)

    • Authors: Muhammad Shafiq; Muhammad Zafar Iqbal, Muhammad Shafiq
      Abstract: Lead is considered a toxic heavy metal and released in the air, water and soils due to auto wheels, industrial and anthropogenic activities which influence on plant growth, fauna and environment.  It is evident that plants are capable of showing different responses of toxicity and tolerance to metals stresses. The objective of this study is to investigate the influence of one of the highly toxic heavy metal, lead (Pb) on the seedling growth of native plant species, Euphorbia hirta Forsk and Sporobolus coromandelianus (Retz.) Kunth in pots. The seedlings of E. hirta and S. coromandelianus showed different effect when treated with 20, 40, 60, 80, 100 as compared without 0 ppm concentrations of lead. The results of the present studies showed the significant (p<0.05) influences of lead 40 ppm treatment on number of leaves, leaf area and seedling dry weight of S. coromandelianus. Lead treatment at 60 ppm significantly reduced shoot, root and total seedling height of S. coromandelianus. Lead treatment at 40 ppm also showed significant on the shoot, seedling length and number of leaves of E. hirta. The seedlings of E. hirta and S. coromandelianus were also used for the development of tolerance indices to different level of lead. The seedlings of E. hirta and S. coromandelianus showed changes in values of tolerance indices. Lead treatment at 20 ppm showed a positively decreasing influence on the tolerance indices of E. hirta and S. coromandelianus. Increase in lead level at 80 – 100 ppm highly decreased the tolerance indices of E. hirta and S. coromandelianus as compared to control.  The seedlings of S. coromandelianus showed tolerance (68.38%) as compared to E. hirta (50.79%) to lead at 100 ppm. The plantation of S. coromandelianus in metal contaminated areas might be useful on the management of environmental metal pollution related issues

  • Optimal sowing times and irrigation schedule of the chickpea (Cicer
           Arietinum L.) in semi-arid regions

    • Authors: Ali Fuat Tarı; Barış Bahçeci
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of different sowing times and irrigation schedules on seed yield and water use of chickpea in Central Anatolia's semi-arid conditions. For two years, field trials were conducted using a split-block trial design with three replications. The study addressed two sowing times as well as five irrigation treatments. While the effect of sowing time on grain yield varied by year, the effect of irrigation on grain yield was significant for both sowing times. At both sowing times, the three irrigation treatments (flowering, pod set, and pod filling) produced the highest grain yield. The efficiency of water use was higher in late sowing than in early sowing. While plant water consumption increased during the early sowing period, the amount of irrigation water decreased. The seasonal yield response factor early sowing, on the other hand, was lower than in late sowing.

  • Defining and Predicting Consumers’ Bread Choices based on
           Socio-Demographic Characteristics and Healthy Living Orientations

    • Authors: Ferit Çobanoğlu; Ayse Demet Karaman, Serdal Ogut
      Abstract: The bread still constitutes an essential part of meeting the daily nutritional requirement. The primary purpose of this study is to examine the socio-demographic characteristics of individuals and their bread consumption preferences and perceptions with a focus on quality and healthy life. The data are obtained digitally with 9583 consumers from survey questions created on google form throughout Turkey throughout the year 2020. First, descriptive statistics of the answers to the comprehensive survey questions are revealed. Then, correlation analysis is conducted to show the relationships between the variables, in line with each sub-objective set up under the primary purpose. Finally, by using some data mining and machine learning algorithms, it is tried to reveal future expectations based on some main determinant parameters such as health and quality expectation for bread consumption of consumers. All statistical and inferential evaluations are made using the Konstanz Information Miner (KNIME) analytics platform. The findings discover that increasing income and education level in bread consumption improves the level of awareness about health and quality of life in people, and these attitudes and perceptions bring about a proportional decrease in bread consumption of individuals. On the other hand, as a vicious circle, it reveals that the sedentary life brought by work-life in modern society causes an increase in body weight and an unhealthy living ecosystem. This study, it is tried to define and predict the behavioral attitudes of consumers toward bread consumption. The findings can offer meaningful advice to all actors and political decision-makers involved in the bread market and supply chain and consumers.
