Conference Paper
Full-text available
The term of soil quality frequently mentioned in soil science literature in recent years is considered as a soil concept that shows differences in terms of assessment methods according to the aims and conditions, and often subjected to severe criticism in terms of application methods, but expected to play a key role in classic and postmodern agricu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A case study was conducted on greenhouse soils and plants in intensive greenhouse areas of Antalya, one of the major greenhouse production regions of Turkey to assess the heavy metal pollution, and to understand the ecological risk, transport processes of heavy metals and the relations with the soil characteristics. All total heavy metal concentrat...

There have been significant differences from past to present in the cultivated varieties of the Banana plant, which is widely produced in tropical and semi-tropical regions of the world. It is seen that the varieties that are widely cultivated today have higher values than the varieties cultured in the past 60 years in terms of total biomass, fruit...

Pollution of the environment and soils by heavy metals is one of the major problems of our time. Our study was to determine the effect of five doses for : zinc, lead and cadmium (0, 2500, 5000, 7500, and 10000 ppm) applied to the Atriplex canescens after 60 days for two weeks. The results showed an increase in the total polyphenols and flavonoids,...

The effects of boron and plant growth promoting bacteria (Bio-B) on the some of physiological parameters with amino acid and organic acid of strawberry cv. Fern were investigated under field conditions. The study treatments were soil, foliar, and soil + foliar applications as main plot and two Bio-B (control and plant growth promoting rhizobacteria...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A survey study was conducted in groundwater and soils of intensive agricultural areas of Kaş, one of the major greenhouse production region of Antalya, Turkey to assess the nitrate and heavy metal pollution and their relationships with soil nitrate and metal parameters.. All physico-chemical characteristics except NO3 and electrical conductivity v...

Climate change and a growing population around the Mediterranean Rim are increasing the need for water and, consequently, the pressure on resources in terms of both quantity and quality. High-quality water should be primarily reserved to drinking water while reclaimed water is an alternative for other usages. A review of situations in Tunisia, Jord...
Article
Full-text available
An experiment was carried out to determine heavy metal loading capacity, metal mobility and pollution risks in soil and to determine growth, heavy metal accumulation and health risks in sugar beet plants following sewage sludge application. Application of sewage sludge led to a far greater introduction of heavy metals and brought about a significan...

Soil is the basis of agriculture and consists of organic matters, minerals, water, and several gasses. All plants require soil both as an anchor to attach and as water and nutrient source. Unfortunately, lifestyles of humans, industrial progress, chemicals used in agriculture contaminate soil and cause soil pollution. A pollutant may be natural or...

A field experiment was conducted to determine the effects of MSW (municipal solid waste) compost as an organic material source on the growth and the accumulation of heavy metals in potato plant (Solanum tuberosum L.). MSW compost was applied to plots at 0, 20, 40, 80 and 160 t/ha rates as an oven-dry basis, and potato plants were cultivated under f...

Abstract: In this study, the effect of emissions of Yatagan Coal Power plant on the heavy metal content of agricultural and forest soils surrounding of the central were investigated. For this purpose, 27 soil and 41 plant samples were collected, based on the dominant wind direction and the other directions, from the varying distances between 721 m...

A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of poultry manure as an organic material sources for sugar beet cultivation. The effect of poultry manure on the total yield and sugar content were found statistically important. The phytomass and nutrient content of sugar beet were increased significantly with poultry manure addition to soil....

The effects of NaCl applications at 0 (control), 25, 50 and 75 mmol concentrations on dry matter and oxalic acid, total and soluble calcium, nitrate and chloride contents of sugar beet plants growing in nutrient solution were examined. Dry matter amount, oxalic acid, nitrate and calcium cintents of sugar beet pplants were decreased, but soluble cal...

A field experiment was carried out to determine the effect of spent mushroom compost (SMC) as an organic material sources for sugar beet cultivation. The effect of spent mushroom compost on the total yield was found statistically important. But no significant differences were determined on sugar content. The best application level of SMC in view of...

In a two-year study, manure, sewage sludge and MSW compost were applied to greenhouse soil. A tomato plant was grown. Soil samples were collected after harvest and total and DTPA-extractable Zn, Cu, Ni, Pb and Cd contents of greenhouse soil were determined. Sludge and MSW compost used in a 2-year period increased both total and DTPA-extractable con...

A pot experiment was conducted to determine the effects of soil application of sewage sludge and municipal solid waste compost on the accumulation of heavy metals in sugar beet plant. Pots containing different amounts (corresponding to 75 and 150 t/ha) of sewage sludge and municipal solid waste compost were used to grow sugar beet plants under gree...

The effect of phosphorous fertilizer on total and soluble oxalic acids, sugar, calcium and phosphorus contents of sugar beet was examined in a greenhouse experiment. Increasing applications of phosphorus increased leaf dry matter, root yield and the total sugar, soluble oxalic acid; but decreased total oxalic acid and calcium contents.

In this experiment the effects of NaCl addition at 0 (control), 25, 50 and 75 mM concentrations to nutrient solution which containing low and normal levels of calcium, and foliar CaCl2 applications on the dry matter and calcium and oxalic acid contents in tomato plant growing in nutrient solution were examined. Dry matter amount, calcium and oxalic...
