Salinity limits crop production in large areas of the world. The application of in vitro Photosystem II (PS-II) activity measurements to screen hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum, L.) genotypes for NaCl tolerance has been investigated by comparing their responses under stress and control (no added NaCl) conditions. One of the four cultivars used in the study was 'Kharchia' known for its high salt tolerance. Wheat seedlings were grown hydroponically in environmental chambers and treated with a range of NaCl concentrations (0.034 M, 0.17 M, 0.68 M, or 3.42 M) over a 1, 3, and 5-day period. The salt treatments were started in the appropriate time so that they were all ten-day-old during harvest. Cellular membrane stability (CMS) as measured by a conductivity method and PS-LT. activity values were affected adversely by NaCl concentration and duration of treatment. Both methods clearly distinguish between salt-sensitive and salt-tolerant genotypes. Statistical analysis showed that PS-II activity and CMS measurements are well correlated (r=0.7589) suggesting that PS-II activity would be used as an additional screening method besides CMS to evaluate salt tolerance of wheat.

Due to high production cost and prevention of environmental pollution, it is important to reduce the amount of nitrogen (N) fertilizer used on wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The aim of this study was to evaluate N use of 6 x 6 diallel wheat F-2 progenies and parental lines at low (NO, no N fertilizer) and high (N+, 160 kg N ha(-1)) N levels. Significant differences were found between N+ and NO application in grain N content, grain N yield, N use efficiency for grain N yield (NUEgn), and N use efficiency for ...
Simultaneous dissolution and uptake of nutrients in microalgal treatment of the secondarily treated digestate
Ulgudur, Nilufer; Bayramoğlu, Tuba Hande; Demirer, Goksel N. (Elsevier BV, 2019-11-01)
Anaerobic digestion processes result in large volumes of digestates which still require the development of elaborate and viable management options to improve the sustainability of these processes. Coupling of secondary anaerobic treatment with a microalgal nutrient removal process may serve benefits such as residual biogas and associated greenhouse gas capture from the digestate content, microalgal biomass build-up and its further valorization. This study investigated the applicability a microalgal nutrient...
Variation in cold tolerance in F6 durum wheat [ Triticum turgidum (L.) Tell. convar. durum (Desf.) Mackey] RILs and the relationships of cold tolerance with some quality parameters and genetic markers

Low temperature is one of the critical factors for determining agricultural production. Therefore, the main objective was to develop the durum wheat lines, which are tolerant to cold particularly in Central Anatolia. The recombinant inbred lines (RILs) (141) derived from F-6 progeny of durum wheat, developed from Kunduru-1149 (female parent) and Cham-1 (male parent) cross, were characterized in terms of their cold tolerance both in the field and under controlled (in growth chamber) conditions. A 0-9 scale w...
Cell wall uronic acid concentrations of resistant and sensitive cultivars of wheat and barley under boron toxicity
Mahboobi, H; Yucel, M; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni (Informa UK Limited, 2001-01-01)
In this study, changes in cell wall uronic acid concentrations of boron (B)-tolerant and B-sensitive cultivars; of wheat and barley were analyzed in control (plants that were grown on water and received no B) and B-treated plants. Ten-day-old seedlings of wheat (Triticum aestivum L. 'Atay' (B-sensitive) and 'Bolal' (B-tolerant)) and barley (Hordeum vulgare L. 'Hamidiye' (B-sensitive) and 'Anadolu' (B-tolerant)) were grown in H3BO3 solution (10 mM final concentration) or water for 3, 5, or 7 days. For determ...
Climate change impacts on lakes: an integrated ecological perspective based on a multi-faceted approach, with special focus on shallow lakes
Jeppesen, Erik; Meerhoff, Mariana; Davidson, Thomas A.; Trolle, Dennis; Sondergaard, Martin; Lauridsen, Torben L.; Beklioğlu, Meryem; Brucet, Sandra; Volta, Pietro; Gonzalez-Bergonzoni, Ivan; Nielsen, Anders (PAGEPress Publications, 2014-01-01)
Freshwater ecosystems and their biodiversity are presently seriously threatened by global development and population growth, leading to increases in nutrient inputs and intensification of eutrophication-induced problems in receiving fresh waters, particularly in lakes. Climate change constitutes another threat exacerbating the symptoms of eutrophication and species migration and loss. Unequivocal evidence of climate change impacts is still highly fragmented despite the intensive research, in part due to the...
