           Maintained at Osman Tosun Gene Bank to Pyrenophora teres f. teres

    • Authors: Awet Araya; Aziz Karakaya, Arzu Çelik Oğuz, Güray Akdoğan
      Abstract: Seedling stage reactions of thirty-eight 2-rowed barley landraces representing different areas of Turkey obtained from Osman Tosun Gene Bank to two Pyrenophora teres f. teres isolates were evaluated. In addition, barley cultivars Bülbül 89 and Avcı 2002 were included. Landraces exhibited different reactions to the disease and their reactions ranged from resistant- moderately resistant to susceptible. Landrace number 33 obtained from Diyarbakır was found the most resistant to the disease compared to all other landraces whereas landrace number 10 obtained from Bilecik-Söğüt, and cultivar Bülbül 89 were the most susceptible. The majority of the landraces were classified between the Moderately Resistant-Moderately Susceptible to Moderately Susceptible-Susceptible. Landrace number 33 exhibited Resistant-Moderately Resistant reactions to both isolates. This landrace from Diyarbakır could be used as the seed source and in the breeding studies for obtaining barley cultivars resistant to the net form of net blotch disease.

  • Determination of Yield, Quality and Morphological Characteristics of
           Different Hybrid Pepper Cultivar Candidates in Konya Ecological Conditions

    • Authors: Musa Seymen; Necibe Kayak, Ünal Kal, Yeşim Dal, Önder Türkmen, Selcan Eroğlu, Banu Çiçek Arı, Neslihan Issı, Ömer Burak Tanrıverdi
      Abstract: Pepper is an important variety of vegetable that has economic value in human nutrition in Turkey and in the world. Continuous changes in producer and consumer demands also create a competitive environment in pepper breeding. Green pepper cultivation is generally carried out in greenhouse cultivation, and its cultivation has become widespread in open field conditions. In the study, 8 F1 (G12, G11, K42, B25, L9, Z22, G14 and L10) pepper varieties with superior characteristics were used as plant material. Some plant, leaf and fruit characteristics as well as yield and quality parameters were examined. As a result of the principal components analysis (PCA) made using theese measurements and observations, the study was explained variations in 6 components at a high rate of 97.94%. G11 and G12 cultivar candidates are located in the positive region of both components in the Score plot graph drawn from the first two components which means that these two candidates showed the highest performance among those evaluated ones. These cultivar candidates showed superior characteristics in terms of yield, fruit weight, fruit width, TTS, pH, L and b parameters. It is thought that these cultivar candidates can be grown in open land conditions having semi-arid climates such as Konya and will contribute to the country's agriculture production.

           Ereğli-Konya Ecological Conditions

    • Authors: Netice Fulden Karaca; Lütfi Pırlak
      Abstract: In order for strawberry varieties to be recommended in any region, the ecological demands of the varieties must be determined by making adaptation studies. For a successful strawberry production, variety adaptation plays an important role in the growing region. In strawberry cultivation, one of the most important purposes of breeding programs is to regulate yield and fruit quality. This study was carried out in order to determine the yield and quality characteristics of four strawberry cultivars (Albion, Monterey, San Andreas and Portola) using frigo seedlings in the Ereğli district of Konya province in 2019-2020. In the study, the earliest flowering and the highest yield were observed in Portola variety in both years. The highest fruit weight was obtained from Monterey (8.19 g) in the first year and Portola (7.72 g) in the second year. The highest number of fruits per plant was obtained from Portola (11.85-8.20 units/plant) in both years. The highest fruit firmness was determined in Monterey (1.47-1.49 kg/cm2) cultivar in both years. The highest TSS content was determined in Albion (12.40-15.10%) in both years. In the experiment, the highest L (brightness) values were found in San Andreas (35.77-36.82) variety in both years. The highest C (color intensity) value was determined in San Andreas (41.25-43.53) cultivar in both years. The darkest red fruits were determined in Monterey (h°=30.33) and Portola (h°=32.06) in the first year, and in Portola (h°=31.46) and Monterey (C°=32.15) cultivars in the second year. Titratable acidity was found to vary between 1.09% and 1.15% in the first year and between 1.23% and 1.69% in the second year. As a result, it was concluded that the cultivation of Portola variety is appropriate in terms of yield and quality characteristics in Konya province Ereğli conditions

  • Usage Opportunities of Pomegranate (Punica Granatum) Peel Dried with
           Dif-ferent Methods in Whole Wheat Flour Chips

    • Authors: Nilgün Ertaş; Mine Aslan
      Abstract: In this study, pomegranate peels were dried using three different drying methods, vacuum, microwave and convective. Dried peels were ground into powder and replaced (0, 5 and 10%) with whole wheat flour in chips formulation to enhance functional properties of chips. Some physical (diameter, thickness, spread ratio and weight), chemical (total phenolic content and antioxidant activity), color and texture properties of chips samples were determined. While the chips obtained with addition of microwave dried peels were brighter, higher values of yellowness were determined with vacuum dried peels. The increased ratio of pomegranate peel powder caused a decrease in diameter and spread ratio values of chips. The utilization of 10% pomegranate peel powder decreased the hardness of the chips samples. The addition of pomegranate peel powder was increased in total phenolic content and antioxidant activity of chips. As a result, pomegranate peel powder can be used as a functional ingredient in snacks product formulation.

  • Exploring the Rural Poverty Prevalence and Eradication Strategies for
           Rural Development: The case of Kenya

    • Authors: Collins Ouma Agayi; Özer Karakayacı
      Abstract: The World Bank estimates that about 689 million people live on less than $1.90 a day globally. Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia collectively account for 85% of this number. In Kenya, 36.1% of the total population live below poverty line, 40.1% in rural and 29.4% in urban areas. This study seeks to determine the contributing factors to rural poverty in Kenya, identify the eradication strategies, and reveal the gaps in the strategies. The study relies on secondary sources of data, including government reports, research articles, theses, international organizations’ reports etc. It applies correlation and regression methods of data analysis to test the hypotheses. The study established that the lack of, and inaccessibility of water and food are aggravating factors of rural poverty, while poverty levels do not drop with an increase in the household land size. It also revealed that increasing the income levels of individuals in rural areas reduces poverty. Finally, the study identifies inadequate community participation, political interference, embezzlement of funds, underfunding, resistance to devolution, less transparency and accountability, and duplication of roles as gaps in the strategies. The study proposes sealing the gaps to strengthen the strategies and inform future policies formulation efforts for successful poverty eradication.

  • Role of Biostimulant Priming Applications on Germination, Growth and
           Chlorophyll Content of Sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) Cultivars under
           Salinity Stress

    • Authors: Mehtap Gürsoy
      Abstract: Salinity, which is one of the abiotic stresses, has become an important obstacle in agricultural areas. The use of humic acids (HA) as a biostimulant is increasing day by day and it is tried to increase the resistance of plants against stress. In this study, the effects of HA application of 0-15ml L-1 (4 concentrations) on the resistance to salt (S) 0-150 mM L-1 (4 concentrations) stress in 3 sunflower cultivars (Maximus (C1), Sirena (C2), Reyna (C3) were investigated under laboratory conditions. In the study; germination percentage (GP), mean germination time (MGT), salt tolerance percentage (STP), seeding length (SL), root length (RL), relative water content (RWC), real water content (GSI), total chlorophyll (Chl), chlorophyll stability index (CSI) parameters were examined. As a result of the study, HA applications played a role in reducing the negative effects of salt stress on the examined parameters. It was concluded that HA can be evaluated as an effective material that can be used to increase resistance and tolerance of plants against salt stress.

  • Seasonal and Annual Changes of Some Climate Factors in Different Areas of
           Loose Dairy Cattle Barns

    • Authors: Elif Şahin Suci; Nuh Uğurlu
      Abstract: This study was conducted to determine the changes of some climatic factors throughout the year in different barn areas in a loose system dairy cattle shelter. For this, digital temperature-humidity meters were placed on different shelter areas, and measurements were made for a year. By developing a different and new model as well as the maximum, minimum and average values in a certain time period in five different areas of the shelter, the temperature and humidity values were categorized into specific groups (stressful, slightly stressful, suitable, etc.) and it was determined how long the animals were exposed to what temperature and humidity values. According to the results, the animals were exposed to temperatures between 5-25 °C for approximately 80% of their time in the spring and autumn seasons, 40% in the winter season, and 50-55% in the summer season. At optimum temperatures (10-20 °C), the animals spent approximately 50% of their total time in spring and autumn, 20% in summer, and 15% in winter. Animals were exposed to heat stress (ti≥32 °C) for only 5-7% of their total time in summer and to cold stress (ti <-5 °C) for only 6-14% of the time in winter. Dairy cattle were found to spend 60% of their annual total time in the appropriate temperature range and approximately 33% of the annual time in the optimum temperature range. Animals were exposed to heat stress and cold stress for about 6-7% and 2-3%, respectively of their total time per year. Animals were exposed to the relative humidity in the range of 40-90%, for approximately 50-60% of their total time throughout the year. According to the results of the research, it was determined that open system shelters planned to protect animals from cold in winter and heat in summer, not create a significant climatic stress on animals.

  • Effects of Dephytinized Wheat Bran on Rheological Properties of Dough and
           Sourdough Fermentation

    • Authors: Hümeyra Çetin Babaoğlu; Nihat Akın, Berrin Özkaya
      Abstract: In this study, the rheological properties of flours containing wheat bran or dephytinized wheat bran at different rates (0, 5, 10, 15%) and some physicochemical and microbiological properties of bread doughs produced with sourdough by using these flour mixes were investigated. Four different sourdoughs, which were spontaneous (SS), Vakfıkebir (VS), containing Lactobacillus fermentum as a starter (LFS) and containing Lactococcus lactis as a starter (LCS), were used. The water absorption, softening degree, resistance to extension values of dough increased while the stability, energy and extensibility values decreased as the rate of bran increased for both bran types. The pH and total acidity (TA) values of the bread dough samples generally increased with the addition of bran. The lowest moisture content, TA and LAB count, and the highest pH and yeast count were obtained in VS. The lowest pH and the highest TA values belonged to the bread dough samples containing SS. The number of LAB and yeast counts in bread dough samples increased with addition of bran compared to control sample.

  • Investigation of the Quality Characteristics of Naturally Cured Sucuks
           with Dill, Spinach and Swiss Chard Powders during Refrigerated Storage

    • Authors: Ali Samet Babaoğlu; Mustafa Karakaya
      Abstract: The current study investigated the effects of dill, spinach and Swiss chard powders on the physicochemical (pH, TBARS, colour, residual nitrate and nitrite), microbiological (TMAB, LAB and total yeast-mould) and textural properties (TPA) of sucuks during refrigerated storage for 90 days. Five different groups of sucuk were prepared containing T1: 100 mg/kg sodium nitrite; T2: 100 mg/kg sodium nitrate; T3: dill powder 0.71%; T4: spinach powder 0.29% and T5: Swiss chard powder 0.26%. Swiss chard powder decreased the pH values of samples (P < 0.05). It was determined that the most effective curing agent in terms of TBARS numbers was spinach powder (T4). The residual nitrate was not detected in the groups of T4 and T5 all the refrigerated storage (P < 0.05). Curing with different vegetable powders did not affect the microbiological counts of sample (P > 0.05). Natural curing agents decreased the redness values of samples (P < 0.05). The highest chewiness value was determined in the group of T5 (P < 0.05). These results suggest that Swiss chard and spinach powders could be recommended as a natural curing agent in the sucuks.

  • Determination of Morphological Characteristics of Some Prominent Tomato

    • Authors: Necibe Kayak; Gülbanu Kıymacı, Ünal Kal, Yeşim Dal, Önder Türkmen
      Abstract: This study was carried out to determine some morphological characteristics of 94 tomato genotypes at the S4 level and to reveal the relationships between these materials. In the study, leaf attitude, leaf length, leaf width, number of flowers, fruit color, fruit weight, fruit width, fruit length, the thickness of pericarp, fruit shape, fruit diameter, number of locules,  and total soluble solid content (TTSC) were measured and observed in these genotypes. As a result of the  phenotypic assessment, the maximum fruit weight values of the genotypes were observed as in G9 (317.59 g), G54 (310 g), G92 (292.85 g), G70 (287.01 g), and G110 (276.66 g); and the lowest fruit weight values were observed in G26 (18.302 g) and G8 (14.48 g).  Average fruit length, fruit width, pericarp thickness, and the number of carpels were recorded (69.09 mm, 56.90 mm, 6.37 mm, and 4 carpels respectively). Tomato genotypes were also investigated using Cluster and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) method based on these measurements and observations. As a result of this analysis, five independent principal component axes were obtained. While these axes represent 69.28% of the total variation, the eigen values were ranged between 1.06 and 4.02. According to the PCA analysis results, genotypes G7, G81, G93, and G103 were prominent in terms of leaf length, fruit width, fruit weight, and carpel number parameters. Based on TSSC results, the G65 genotype was found to be the most prominent one, and the genotypes G12 and G114  exhibit promising results for fruit color.  A high degree of morphological variation was detected among tomato genotypes.

  • Usage of Probiotics in the Poultry Industry and Effects on Meat Quality

    • Authors: Berna Çapan; Aytunga Bağdatlı
      Abstract: Currently, a significant survey field is the use of probiotics as feed additives. There are many essays about the effect of the use of probiotics on meat quality. There is common agreement that probiotics supplementation could improve meat quality. Probiotic treatment increases meat tenderness however probiotics on lipid composition and oxidation of meat and sensory properties may change. The products obtained can be presented to the consumer as a healthy, taste and aroma enhanced and safe food. Thus, while providing delicious and nutritious food to the consumer, it also has positive effects on consumer health. Especially today, consumption of functional foods containing probiotics is increasing rapidly. Consumer interest has accelerated research on probiotics. On the other hand, there is a continuous increase in the number of microorganisms used in the market as probiotics. The current situation will be taken one step further with the discovery of new and active microorganism varieties that can be used as probiotics in the future probiotics will be the subject of many studies in the future. Therefore, it is thought that this issue should be emphasized. Apart from all these; as a group of growth promoters, the supplement of probiotics to the diet of poultry has been found to develop growth performance, increase feed conversion yield and develop immune responses.
