  • Determination of Knowledge and Perception Levels of Agricultural Producers
           on Climate Change in Erbaa Plain (Tokat)

    • Authors: Yücel BOLAT; Muzaffer BAKIRCI
      Abstract: The main aim of this study is to determine the knowledge and perception levels of agricultural producers on climate change in Erbaa Plain. For this purpose, a questionnaire was applied to 200 randomly determined producers in 20 villages located on the Erbaa Plain and its periphery. According to the findings obtained within the scope of the study, the average age of the partici- pants is 54 (68%). Most of the producers (85%) declared that they know the concept of climate change, 60% of them stated that drought is the first thing that comes to mind when talking about climate change. Producers think that the reduction in freshwater resources is one of the main consequences of climate change (57.5%). It was a remarkable finding that a significant part of the producers (46.2%) declared that they had no idea about adaptation to climate change. In total, 97% of the producers stated that the Erbaa Plain was affected by climate change; 95.5% of the participants declared that climate change occurs mostly as a decrease in the amount of crops (93.2%) and an increase in weeds and insects (52.4%) in the Erbaa Plain; 33% of the producers par- ticipating in the survey stated that technical support is insufficient for taking precautions against climate change. In the survey study, “what are the most important problems encountered in agri-cultural production activities in the Erbaa plain” was asked, and many problems were expressed in relation to this question.

  • An Overview of Religious Tourism and Analytical Approaches for İzmir

    • Authors: Yunus Fatih YÜKSEL; Füsun BAYKAL
      Abstract: Religious tourism, which has a long history, is an indispensable type of tourism, although it is quite different from the past in terms of scope and applications. Because the relationship of peopleand societies with faith continues uninterruptedly, new beliefs are born at the same time, the economic and social positive effects of religious tourism maintain their importance, and theycan respond to diversification in tourism and the search for new destinations. Therefore, when new ones were added to the old and well-established places of visit of this niche market, placeswhere religious visits could be made from local to universal increased in every corner of the world. The aim of this study is twofold: The first is to deal with the main concepts of religious tourism,its historical development, innovations, its existence in the world and in Turkey. The second is to explain the situation of İzmir, which, despite having important resources for religious tourism,could not reach a certain position in the international market. A research carried out in 2019 has been the main source of motivation in organizing this comprehensive subject, which extendsfrom general to specific, in the form of an article. According to the findings, most of the works open to religious tourism in the central city and districts of İzmir belong to the religion of Islam.Religious tourism in İzmir draws a one-way profile consisting of visits only. Therefore, although this type of tourism has a high development potential, it exhibits a weak structure. In order toaccelerate religious tourism in İzmir, this type of tourism should be one of the goals in the tourism strategy of the province, innovative developments in the world should be followed and inferencesshould be obtained. Other suggestions are as follows: religious tourism should be renewed in the triangle of spiritual tourism, creative tourism, and transformational tourism, demand and product diversification should be made and personalized products should be created. In addition, various events should be organized throughout the year, religious resources should not be allowed to turn away from their special identity and become touristic, and local and spiritual values should be the brand face of İzmir.

  • Land Use in the Lower Meriç Basin

    • Authors: Yasemin KİBAROĞLU; Nuriye GARİPAĞAOĞLU
      Abstract: The research area is in the Ergene Section of the Marmara Region, within the borders of Edirne Province. It covers the lower course of the Meriç Basin in Turkey. In an integrated land use study, phases such as the land use type of the study area, the classification of the land in terms of use capability, and the evaluation of land use are important. Therefore, examining the land use status of the relevant basin and providing suggestions for sustainable use and management by taking into account the natural environment conditions are considered among the priority objectives. Within the scope of the study, the historical development of land use was investigated. Soil and statip (detection and improvement project of problematic agricultural areas) data were analyzed using geographic information systems, and land use and land use capability distribution were examined. It is seen that agricultural areas and forests proportionally cover the largest area in the basin. For the conscious use of natural resources in developing countries, there is a need for sustainable use and management studies on a basin basis. In this context, land use was exam- ined in terms of the sustainability of natural resources in the basin; A land use proposal has been developed in order to protect the ecological balance, eliminate existing problems, and ensure sustainable development.

  • Evaluation Of Wool-Hair Potential On The Basis Of Level 2: Example Of TRB2

    • Authors: Numan ERTAŞ
      Abstract: Throughout history, humans have benefited from animals in different ways. In the pre-agricultural period, in hunting and gathering societies, people benefited from animals to meet their feeding and dressing needs. Apart from meat and milk, which are essential nutrients, one of the most common forms of utilization is fiber. The domestication of sheep and the exploitation of wool coincide with the same time. Depending on the development of societies, usage rate and form of fleece has changed. While it was used mainly for dressing and protection from cold in primitive societies, it is also used in medical clothing and vehicles, natural fertilizer production, insulation works and various flooring Works in modern societies. Since 1961, more than 2 million tons of animal fiber is produced every year in the world and has an important place in the economy of many countries. China, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Turkey is the pioneer countries in the World wool production. TRB2, TRC2 and TRC3 regions constitute the most important wool producing areas about wool production in Turkey.
