Abstract

In this study, it was determined whether the treatment of red grape vinegar diluted at different

rates on fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) plants grown in an environment where

artificial drought conditions were created by limiting irrigation water would have an effect on

the plant's adaptation to drought conditions and its effect on some yield and vegetative

characteristics of the plant.

Irrigation water was given as unrestricted and 50% restricted, and concentration of red grape

vinegar (control, 1% and 2%) were treated to the plants. The experiment was carried out

according to the randomized block desing in split-split plots with three replicates. Irrigation

application was placed in the main plot, fenugreek varieties were placed in the sub-plot, and

vinegar treatments were placed in the bottom plot.

In the scope of the research; Characteristics such as plant height (cm), pod length (cm),

number of pods per plant (pcs/plant), number of seeds per pod (pcs/pod), seed weight per

plant (g/plant), thousand seed weight (g) were examined.

According to the results, while the effect of irrigation and vinegar treatments on plant height

was observed, it was determined that there was no difference between the varieties. In

irrigation applications, plant height was found to be 50.13 cm in applications with sufficient

irrigation, while it was 31.21 cm in applications with limited irrigation. The effect of 2%

vinegar treatment on plant height was negative. While the plant height in 2% vinegar

treatments was 36.98 cm, the average plant height in control applications was 42.80 cm.

While the effect of irrigation and vinegar treatments on seed weight per plant was observed,

no difference was observed between fenugreek varieties. In irrigation applications; Seed

weight values per plant were determined as 2.88-1.22 g/plant in adequate irrigation and

limited irrigation applications, respectively. The effect of 1% and 2% concentrations of

vinegar treatments was greater than the control applications. In this application, seed weight

per plant varied between 2,536-1,445 g.

As a result, it was determined that vinegar had a more positive effect on characteristics such

as the number of seeds per pod and 1000 grains in fenugreek plants where irrigation water

was limited. It would be beneficial to reveal these results more clearly through field trials.
