Su, enerji ve gıda birbirleri ile etkileşim halinde kaynaklardır. Bu etkileşim su-enerji-gıda bağı (nexus) kavramı olarak 2010’ların başı itibariyle çalışılmaya başlamıştır. Gıda ve Tarım Örgütüne (FAO) göre, gıda-enerji-su kaynaklarını birbirleri arasındaki çeşitli bağlantılar düşünülerek ele almak, karmaşık ve birbiriyle ilişkili doğal kaynak sis...

The objective of this study was to reveal the concept water, energy and food (WEF) nexus approach for sustainable agriculture. Water, energy and food are linked to one another since an output from one can be an input to another. Water can be used for irrigation purposes while it is also used for energy production. Some crops are also used for energ...

The aim of this study is to create a spatial database of basic values related to the level of agricultural mechanization with analyzable correlations. This will be helpful for decision-makers for producing policies to be followed in developing the agricultural structure of Kır¸sehir region. The agricultural mechanization status in Kır¸sehir was inv...

The uniformity of seed flow that affects accuracy of seed spacing is the key indicator to evaluate the success of fluted roller design. Constructional, operational parameters and the properties of the seeds are effective in seed flow uniformity. In this study, relation of seed flow uniformity of canola, onion and carrot seeds with coefficient of va...

The amount of material flow rate from a fluted roller could be considered as a simple phenomena but the problem actually is complex since many factors contributes to this physical system. In such a system; constructional, operational parameters and the properties of the material being conveyed determine the flow rate. The constructional parameters...

Although agricultural mechanization constitutes approximately one third of the agricultural production inputs of and directly linked with productivity-enhancing factors still needs more attention compared to other inputs in our country. Thus has led to insufficient source allocation for regenerating park of agricultural machinery and increased perc...

Fluted rollers are the one mostly used in seed and fertilizer metering devices in random seeder. Small seeds planted in Turkey have high costs and planting such seeds should be achieved in order to adjust the seed rate accurately. Hence, designers need some prediction functions that include variables related to construction, operating conditions al...

Soil compaction or hardpan is a significant problem in many soils in the world. Soil structural deterioration from wheel compaction can adversely affect crop developement and root growth. Controlled traffic is a compaction management method, which permanently separates traffic zones and crop zones within a field. Accordingly sampling systems that a...

The experiment design was split plot with main plots devoted to the residual management strategies including burning residue, crushing residue by disk and leaving residue on the field without any crushing operation. Sub plots were tillage methods including moldboard plowing at the depth of 20-25 cm in fall, moldboard plowing at the depth of 20-25 c...

Rapeseed oil and olive oil are similar in composition. In particular, the proportion of unsaturated fatty acids is high. In addition rapeseed oil contains a large proportion of so-called alpha-linolenic acid, one of the most important omega-3 fatty acids. This alpha-linolenic acid appears to be one of the most important components for heart protect...

Scientific Research Project supported by Ege University, Izmir. Grant Number: 08-ZRF-017 The objectives of this study were to analyze different seeding methods for canola mathematically and statistically, determine metering units that allow for random and precision seeding of coated and uncoated canola seeds. A cheap-practical metering unit is also developed.

The objective of this study is to determine the core values and key relations related to agricultural mechanization level spatially. The survey study to be conducted in Kırşehir will include sizes and numbers of farm fields, production pattern, numbers, models, power groups of tractors and equipment used with. CBS software will be used to analyze the data provided from surveys and GPS device that will be used to determine the location of the production fields. In order to provide solutions about improving agricultural mechanization level this project will be including promising information. In this context, creating such a database can be updated and further developed for management and decision making process.
