  • Investigation of the Usability of Biodiesel from Horse Oil in Diesel

    • Authors: Fatih Aydın; Hidayet Oğuz, Hüseyin Öğüt
      Abstract: Biodiesel is an alternative diesel fuel produced from animal and vegetable oils. As an alternative and ecologically acceptable substitute for conventional fuel, biodiesel is produced from a wide variety of edible vegetable oils that are usually used for human consumption and whose prices are expected to rise in the future. In this context, reliable and low-cost raw materials are gaining increasing interest for biodiesel production, such as by-products of meat processing industries or waste animal fats. Biodiesel production from waste animal fat, and raw food does not compete with the industry and has a great potential for waste caused by the global decline. In our study, a potential alternative fuel was produced for diesel engines by using the non-food-grade fat portion of horse meat consumed in Middle Asia countries. Solid crude horse oil was liquefied, and its fatty acid components were analyzed and transformed into horse oil biodiesel by the transesterification method. It was determined whether the fuel properties of crude horse oil, horse oil biodiesel, and euro diesel fuel comply with the standard values, and their usability in diesel engines was investigated. As a result of the tests, it has been concluded that horse oil biodiesel does not meet the standards in terms of cold flow properties and can only be used at a rate of low volumetric ratios in diesel engines. This article will contribute to the use of horse oil biodiesel production stages and fuel properties in diesel engines and future studies.

           Tail Shaft and Single-Acting Disc Harrow That Takes Its Movement from The

    • Authors: Ergün Çıtıl; Tamer Marakoğlu
      Abstract: In this study; soil-driven single-acting disc harrow and PTO-driven single-acting disc harrow machines were used. The single-acting disc harrow, which moves from the soil, was tested with two different disc diameters (610 mm and 660 mm) and three different direction angles (16o- 23o and 30o), while the single-acting disc harrow, which moves from the tail shaft, was tested with two different disc diameters (610 mm and 660 mm), three different direction angles (160- 230 and 300) and three different disc speeds (104.97-119.97 and 143.96 min-1). As a result of the treatments, the effects on soil moisture retention, deformation area, stubble burial rate and stubble amount were compared for both machines.It was determined that the cutting width and working depth increased with the increase in disk diameter and direction angle, and the deformation area increased accordingly. The lowest amount of stubble was obtained from D1N3Y3, D1N3Y2 and D2N3Y3 treatments as 20.67 g m-2, 22.67 g m-2 and 25.33 g m-2, respectively. The highest stubble burial rate was 87.30%, 86.07% and 84.02% in D1N3Y3, D1N3Y2 and D1N2Y3 treatments. While the lowest u/v ratio was obtained from D1N1Y1 with 3.03, the highest u/v ratio was obtained from D2N3Y3 with 4.63, the lowest skidding rate was obtained from D1N3Y1 with 3.17% and the highest skidding rate was obtained from D2Y3 with 11.99

  • Efficacy of Some Trichoderma Isolates as Biocontrol Agents Against
           Rhizoctonia solani Kühn in Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)

    • Authors: Özden Salman; Nuh Boyraz
      Abstract: This study was carried out to determine the in vitro and in vivo activities of Trichoderma isolates isolated from soil and plants collected from different provinces in 2020-2021 against Rhizoctonia solani, which causes root rot in beans. Using the pathogen as a trap, 61 Trichoderma isolates were obtained from 65 soil samples from 20 provinces.  In addition, 8 Trichoderma isolates previously obtained from different plants were included in the experiment. Trichoderma isolates showed very strong (4 Trichoderma isolates), strong (1 Trichoderma isolate), moderate (18 Trichoderma isolates) and low level (18 Trichoderma isolates) hyperparasitic effects against R. solani in in vitro experiments with dual culture method. In comparison, some isolates (28 Trichoderma isolates) were found to be ineffective. As a result of in vivo tests with 10 Trichoderma isolates selected according to the effect results in vitro, it was determined that Trichoderma isolates were 8-89% effective against R. solani. The most effective Trichoderma isolates against R. solani was Trichoderma virens-130 with an 89% effect, followed by Trichoderma-106 and Trichoderma-162.1 with 82% and 75% effect, respectively. According to these results, it was observed that the isolates of Trichoderma, which were moderately and highly effective in vitro, significantly reduced the severity of the disease in vivo.

  • Measurement of Projected Areas in Some Confectionery Sunflowers
           (Helianthus annuus L.) Seeds by Image Processing Technique

    • Authors: Muhittin Yağmur Polat; Akın Özcan, Selim Uygun, Oğuzhan Aydın
      Abstract: This study aimed to demonstrate the practical and low-cost usability of image processing techniques in agricultural grain products by making a sample application in confectionery sunflower seeds. A desktop scanner and an open source software ImageJ were used. Local sunflower cultivars, which were obtained from Manisa, Denizli and Kayseri provinces, were used as a material. After the seeds were scanned with a scanner, their projected areas were calculated in 2D with ImageJ software. Afterward, the dimensions of the seeds were measured with a precision scale and caliper to compare with their projected areas. As a result of the statistical analysis, very high correlations could not be reached between the calculated projected areas and the other measured dimensions. Seed weight, seed length, seed width and hull weight were found to be highly or moderately correlated with the projected area values in all three seed types. Research findings show that the most important reason for not finding very high correlations was the use of local cultivars and the low level of seed purity.

  • Monitoring of changes in the quality characteristics of cooked chicken
           döner kebabs formulated from mechanically deboned chicken meat subject to
           refrigerated storage

    • Authors: Ayşe Öney; Mustafa Karakaya, Ali Samet Babaoğlu
      Abstract: This study aimed to evaluate the effects of mechanically deboned chicken meat (MDCM) on the physicochemical and sensory properties of chicken döner kebab during 28 days of storage. Five different groups of chicken döner kebab were produced: C1: Control 1 including chicken breast meat, C2: Control 2 including ground chicken breast + transglutaminase, M1: 95% ground chicken breast + 5% MDCM + transglutaminase, M2: 90% ground chicken breast + 10% MDCM + transglutaminase and M3: 85% ground chicken breast + 15% MDCM + transglutaminase. The addition of MDCM to chicken döner kebab samples increased the pH value of the samples (P < 0.05). The TBARS values of the chicken döner kebabs increased during the storage period, especially on the 21st and 28th day. Groups M1, M2 and M3 had lower lightness (L*) and higher redness (a*) values than the control groups (P < 0.05). The addition of MDCM had no negative influence on the sensory parameters of the samples (P > 0.05).

           Thanatephorus cucumeris (Frank) Donk) Isolates from Bean, Sugar Beet and
           Potato Planting Areas in Konya

    • Authors: Özden Salman; Nuh Boyraz
      Abstract: This study was carried out to determine the disease severity of Rhizoctonia solani isolates isolated from plant samples collected from bean, sugar beet and potato cultivation areas in Konya in 2020 and the anastomosis groups of the most virulent isolates. A total of 40 R. solani isolates were obtained as a result of the isolations made from 86 plant samples (36 beans, 25 sugar beets and 25 potatoes) showing root rot symptoms in general appearance. The number of R. solani isolates obtained from these plants, respectively; 10 isolates from beans, 15 from potatoes and 15 from sugar beets. Nine of the bean isolates and 14 of the potato and sugar beet isolates were determined as multinucleic. One isolate each isolated from the bean, sugar beet and potato was determined as binucleic. As a result, a total of 37 multinucleate (MN) and 3 binucleate (BN) isolates were obtained from all plants. As a result of pathogenicity tests, 3 R. solani isolates with the highest disease severity for each plant were amplified using ITS1F and ITS4B primers and anastomosis groups were determined.  Accordingly, the anastomosis groups of Fa 3.2 (97%), Fa 2.2 (89%) and Fa 1 (86%) in beans were characterized as AG 4HGI. The isolates with the highest disease severity in potatoes (Pa 10, Pa 12.1 and Pa 15.2) were determined as AG 3 group. Disease severity was determined as 50% of Pa 15.2, 44% of Pa 10 and 42% of Pa 12.1. The disease severity of 9 of the isolates obtained from sugar beet was determined as 100%. The anastomosis group of 3 randomly selected isolates from these isolates was characterized as AG 2-2.

  • Survey of Herd Management on Conventional Dairy Farms in North Algeria

    • Authors: Zakaria Meskini; Abdelkader Dahou, Djamaia Sabiha Radja, Houari Yerou, Abdelkader Homrani
      Abstract: A survey was conducted to evaluate husbandry practices and herd health management in dairy farms in Mostaganem province, located in north Algeria. Data was collected through face-to-face interviews with 56 farmers, followed by a visit to the production environment of the dairy cows. The results showed that 64% of farmers feed their cows a basic ration of oat hay and straw, while 32% use corn silage. On average, 9.85 ±0.32 kg of concentrate was distributed per dairy cow. Most farms didn’t have efficient forage production, while only 21% of them produced all the necessary forage. The average milk production per cow on the surveyed farms was 18.19 ±0.45 L, with a lactation length of 293.5 ±1.65 days. The cows were milked using a portable milking machine in poor hygienic conditions.  Estrus detection was performed occasionally by farmers, and natural breeding was the main method of insemination, occurring at a rate of 63%. The voluntary waiting period was on average 76.6 ±3.56 days, and the average calving interval was 14.35 ±0.2 months. The culling rate in dairy farms was 23% on average, with the most common reasons for culling being mastitis and age at a rate of 23% and 21% respectively. The main diseases reported by the farmers were mastitis (82%), followed by lameness (57%). All surveyed farmers vaccinated their herds against only rabies and foot-and-mouth disease. This survey can help to identify the challenges and potential opportunities for improving dairy farm productivity and welfare in the Mostaganem province. The agricultural and economic sectors should work with farmers towards improving dairy farming techniques and practices, using efficient feeding systems and enhanced technology of dairy herd management, providing training and education to farmers, and resolving herd health issues to increase the economic efficiency of the dairy industry.

      Abstract: Lavender is a valuable ornamental and aromatic plant species with several applications, including food additives, cosmetics, perfumes, medicine, and aromatherapy, owing to its antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiviral, and antioxidant properties, as well as its pleasant odor. The purpose of this study was to determine the rooting capability of lavender species (Lavandula angustifolia and Lavandula × intermedia) in different media (peat, perlite, peat+perlite) and different doses of indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) (1000, 1500, and 2000 ppm) on cuttings. After 5 seconds in the (IBA) solution, the cuttings were planted in various rooting media in the greenhouse environment. The highest rooting rate, 93%, was obtained from 2000 ppm IBA application in peat+perlite (1:1) medium, whereas the lowest rooting rate, 13%, was obtained from Lavandula angustifolia species from control application in peat media. In a peat+perlite (1:1) medium with 1500 ppm, the longest root length was 13.16 cm. IBA application Lavandula angustifolia species, the lowest root length in Lavandula × intermedia cuttings were 2.7 cm from control application in perlite medium. Lavandula × intermedia cuttings in peat medium produced the best results in terms of root number (3.36 pcs/cuttings), while Lavandula × intermedia cuttings in perlite medium produced the lowest root number in the control application. In terms of viability rate, both species received high values, with the lowest viability rate obtained from the control application in perlite medium with 80% in Lavandula angustifolia species.

      Abstract: This study investigated the relationship between Rumple and tree crown parts regarding direction, fruit development stages and fruit rind nutrient content. A Lemon orchard on which Rumple disorders have shown severely were chosen among Erdemli and Silifke region where the majority of grown lemon cultivar is Kütdiken. In this orchard, from healthy and contaminated trees samples were taken from the South and West half parts of crown and the North and East parts of the crown separately. Also, fruit samples were taken at four fruit development stages which were hazelnut-sized fruit, end of fruit enlargement, the beginning of maturation and fully mature fruit stages. The rind of samples fruit was analyzed, and their content of N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Mn, Fe, Zn, B, Cl and Na was determined. PCA was used to analyze these data. Biplot scheme of the 2nd Sampling from the part one-half of the trees which includes the South and West directions, that is, from the Healthy (G2S) and Rumple signed trees (G2B) taken were examined. The increase in K, Zn, Fe, Ca, and Mg is associated with Na, P and Cl concentration reduction. Besides this, in this period, it was observed that fruit rind has higher N, S, Mn and B content which were taken from part one, that is, the South and West sides, of healthy plants. The relationship identified here is important because Rumple’s symptoms become visible after this stage.

  • The effects of Some Organic Compounds on Yield and Fruit Quality in Albion
           Strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duch) Cultivar

    • Authors: Muzaffer İpek; Kasım Cankurt
      Abstract: Strawberry is one of the most popular fruits in Türkiye, and its cultivation is increasing due to its high adaptability to different climatic and soil conditions. Greenhouses and conventional agriculture are preferred in strawberry cultivation in terms of both growing conditions and the applicability of good agriculture and organic agriculture. Good agriculture and organic agriculture have increased their importance in achieving reliable and quality food, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). For these reasons, the application compounds are increasing day by day. Accordingly, the types and varieties of organic compounds have increased. Albion strawberry cultivars were grown under calcareous soil conditions, and the effects of various organic component levels on yield and fruit quality were examined. In the experiment, vinasse, molasses, and vermicompost (liquid) were each employed at quantities of 2.5%, 5%, 7%, and 10%. Because of the treatments, a vinasse concentration of 2.5 % was shown to be more beneficial than the others on yield metrics such as yield per decare (1664.89 kg) and yield per plant (332.98 g) (332.98 g). There was a marked improvement in fruit quality between the molasses treatments and the other organic compound treatments. It was discovered that the treatment with molasses at a concentration of 2.5 % (15.94 %) had a greater TSS than the other treatments, whereas the treatment with molasses at a concentration of 5.0 % had to have a higher TAC of 1.058 %. Based on the results, strawberry farmers can be told that using vinas and molasses together is an effective way to increase strawberry yield and improve the quality of the fruit.

  • Investigation of the Efficiency of Occupational Health and Safety
           Education of Agriculture Department Students in Vocational High Schools

    • Authors: Sena Yaren Sarıcan; Arzu Fırlarer, Füsun Eyidoğan
      Abstract: The basis of occupational hazards and risks in agriculture, which is a high-risk sector, is due to the behavior of farmers based on a lack of knowledge. In this sense, farmers are required to have knowledge of occupational health and safety (OHS) in agriculture and to carry out their work with the following health and safety measures. The easiest way to achieve this is to implement these measures by making a habit of them together with technical experts working with the farmers in the field. In this context, it is important that agricultural, food, and laboratory technicians, who play an important role in ensuring soil and animal health and safety, acquire this information during their training. This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of occupational health and safety training prepared for students studying in the relevant departments of vocational high schools. Occupational health and safety training in agriculture was given to students from the agriculture and laboratory department of İstanbul Mehmet Akif Ersoy Vocational and Technical Anatolian High School, which was determined as a pilot school in Ankara, and the awareness of high school students in the field of occupational health and safety was measured and especially on OHS in pesticide use. The tests applied at the beginning and end of the training were analyzed at the end of the study and it was concluded that they gained the awareness to a large extent.  While the awareness score was 55 in the test performed at the beginning of the training, the awareness score increased to 95 after the training.
