Authors Yakup ÖZKAN, Feride YAMAN
Abstract This study was performed to point out the advantages of organic fertilizers on artificial fertilizers and to put one step in organic production, which is speedily spreading up across the world. Since this study was first on the organic production in Tokat region, it would be important. The study was carried out on the four years old Granny Smith trees grafted on MM 106 rootstock in an orchard of Tokat Rural Affair Research Station in 2004-2005. In the experiment, the effect of twelve different fertilizers (sheep manure, cattle manure, pigeon manure, Ormin K, sheep manure + Ormin K, sheep manure +sea moss, sheep manure +perl humus, sheep manure +Isr-2000+Crop-Set, Perl humus, ammonium sulfate+TSP, sea moss, Isr-2000+Crop-Set) on the performance of apple cultivars Granny Smith were determined. The yield per tree, the efficiency of yield, number of leaves, leaf area, macro (N, P, K, Ca, Mg) and micro (Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Na) elements in leaves were determined. The yield efficiency was the highest (110,943 g/cm2) with Perl humus application and lowest (29,465 g/cm2) with Isr-2000+Crop-Set in the first year. In the second year, the best yield efficiency obtained from sheep manure application. When according to control higher macro nutrition contents of leaves were observed from treatments of sheep manure, sheep manure +OrminK, sheep manure +Perl humus and pigeon manure. For the micro nutrition contents of leaves; Ormin K, sheep manure +Ormin K, sea moss, ammonium sulfate+TSP gave higher results.
