This research was performed to determine the effects of potassium applied on soil to increase dose on the yield and yield components of stick tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L. var. Şimşek) grown in greenhouse conditions in the Antalya Province in 2010. In this experiment, the Şimşek fresh tomato variety commonly grown in the Mediterranean region was tested with applications of 0, 40, 80, 120, and 160 kg K2O/ha. According to the results, the yield was greatest (195. 7 Mt·ha -1) with 120 kg K2O/ha application. The effects of potassium application on tomato yield and yield components were statistically significant (P < 0. 01 and P < 0. 05). Depending on the application dose, plant stem diameter ranged from 14. 22 to 14. 99 mm, plant length 173. 05 to 181. 69 cm, fruit diameter 70. 33 to 73. 84 mm, fruit number per plant 29. 20 to 34. 57, fruit weight 160. 45 to 185. 63 g, penetration resistance 2. 45 to 2. 99 kg·cm -2, pH 5. 10 to 5. 20 and sugar content 3. 67 to 3. 97 ° Brix. In addition, the leaf N/K ratio also affected the tomato yield. Significant correlations were found among the macro and micronutrients of the leaf, yield, and yield components. © 2013 Korean Society for Horticultural Science. Source

This study was conducted at research and experimental areas of Bahri Dag das International Agricultural Research Institute. For the experiment, 8 forage plants were used (all plants with a C3 type of photosynthesis and they were grown under some conditions). The experiment was laid out Randomized Complete Block design with four replications. We analyze importance of the growth parameters Relative Growth Rate (RGR), Net Assimilation Rate (NAR), Leaf Area Rate (LAR), Leaf Weight Rate (LWR) and Root Weight Rate (RWR). A large variation in physiological characters between species was observed. Slow-growing species had a constant RGR, NAR and LAR in early stages. Genotypic variation in physiological characters may be an explanation for the observed. © Medwell Journals, 2010. Source

The aim of this study was to examine how differences in grain yield, nutritive value, ensilabihty and harvesting losses of intensively managed some winter cereals (bread wheat, triticale and rye) harvested during the advancing stages of ripening. Three cereal crops (Triticwn aestivum L., cv. Konya-2002, Triticale Wittmack. cv. Mikham-2002 and Secale cerate L., cv. Aslim-95) were assessed and Dry Matter concentration (DM), Organic Matter Digestibility (OMD), Crude Protein (CP), Ash Content (AC) and Water Soluble Carbon Hydrate (WSC) were evaluated in five date of harvesting. Dry matter yields changed relatively between harvest dates in three crops. Nutritive value, crude protein and organic matter were relatively small. There were no clear and consistent relationships between harvesting loss and stage of ripeness in current experiment. Loss of wheat yield was relatively high in 2 years. Loss of rye yield showed lower than other. Gram DM concentration increased by average of 9.5 g kg-1 (wheat), 9.2 g kg-1 (rye) and 10.1 g kg-1 (triticale) per day the interval. © Medwell Journals, 2010. Source
