Effect of Canopy Temperature Depression on Grain Yield and Yield Components in Bread and Durum Wheat

Bahar, Bilge
Genc, Ibrahim
Relationships of CTD (Canopy Temperarture Depression) with grain yield and its components were evaluated under Cukurnova conditions, Turkey, in 2003 growth season. With this aim, six bread and five durum wheat genotypes were used as a material. CTD was measured three times during beginning of heading to full anthesis stages and only at the last measurements, both bread wheat and different wheat genotypes showed significant differences. At the last measurements, CTD of bread wheat ranged between -0.22 and 0.57 degrees C. On the other hand, CTD average values of durum wheat genotypes changed 0.63 to 1.23 degrees C. This study showed chat durum wheat was cooler than bread wheat in high temperature conditions. In addition, CTD was positively correlated with grain yield, spike yield, and grain numbers per spike, Overall, CTD has played an important role to search physiological basis of grain yield of wheat, and CTD can successfully use as a selection criterion in breeding programs.


Effect of temperature on clearance rate daily ration and digestiontime of Mnemiopsis leidyi from the southern Caspian Sea
M,, Rowshantabari; Finenko, Ga; Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan; Kiabi, B. (University of Guilan, 2012-06-01)
The effect of temperature on the main feeding parameters of Mnemiopsis leidyi from the southern Caspian Sea was studied in 2002. The clearance rates and daily rations were estimated from laboratory experiments in a wide range of temperatures from 12 to 27 ?C for M. leidyi of 12?17 mm in length. Clearance rate values changed from 52.5 to 107.3 ml ind-1 h-1. The coefficient Q10 in temperature 12 - 20 ?C was higher than that in 20 - 27 ?C (3.81 and 1.91, respectively). The specific daily ration changed from 1....
Impact of fertilizer usage on phosphorus loads to Lake Uluabat
BULUT, Elif; Aksoy, Ayşegül (Elsevier BV, 2008-06-25)
This work investigated the role of fertilizer application rate on phosphorus (P) transport and loading to Lake Uluabat in Turkey. For this purpose ArcView Interface of Soil and Water Assessment Tool 2000 (AVSWAT) was used. Results showed that when the fertilizer amount applied to agricultural lands was doubled, the P load to Lake Uluabat increased by 32%. P transported to Lake Uluabat declined by about 6, 10 and 16%, when the fertilizer usage at the agricultural fields were decreased by 20, 30 and 50%, resp...
Effects of drying on Atterberg limits of pyroclastic soils of Northern Turkey
Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan (2018-09-15)
In this study, the effects of drying on Atterberg limits is investigated using 30 soil samples taken from 0.2 m to 4 m depths, from nine different landslide sites in pyroclastic deposits in Northern Turkey. Samples for Atterberg limits are prepared by (i) starting from in-situ moisture content without any drying, (ii) drying at 60 degrees C and (iii) drying at 110 degrees C. The range of liquid limit values is 35%-103% and plasticity index is 0%-37% when samples are prepared from their in-situ moisture cont...
Role of Saharan dust on phytoplankton dynamics in the northeastern Mediterranean
Eker-Develi, Elif; Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan; TUĞRUL, SÜLEYMAN (2006-01-01)
Effects of atmospheric deposition and other environmental factors on phytoplankton dynamics were evaluated from an open (having offshore characteristics) and a coastal station in the northeastern Mediterranean between December 2000 and December 2001. Data on phytoplankton, chlorophyll a, nutrients, temperature and salinity were obtained at bi-weekly or more intense intervals during 1 yr, whilst transport of Saharan dust towards the sampling region was monitored daily by SeaWiFS (sea-viewing wide field-of-vi...
Effect of material characteristics on the properties of blended cements containing high volumes of natural pozzolans
Turanlı, Lutfullah; Uzal, B; Bektas, F (Elsevier BV, 2004-12-01)
The effect of three different natural pozzolans from Turkish deposits on the properties of blended cements produced by intergrinding cement clinker with a high volume of natural pozzolan (55 wt.% of the cementitious material) was investigated. The particle size distribution of blended cements, setting time, heat of hydration, and compressive strength of blended cement mortars were determined. Experimental results showed that the hardness of the pozzolanic material strongly influenced the particle size distr...
