In this study, the statistical analysis of manganese
contents for soil, leaf and grain samples of the wheat plants, Triticum
spelta, in the Cukurova Region of Adana in Turkey was performed to
determine the relationship among the variables and correlation coefficients
of manganese (Mn) contents. The soil samples were taken from the plant
rhizosphere. Leaf samples at the stem elongation time and grain samples
at the physiological maturity stage were analysed for Mn contents. The
Mn contents of soil (MnS) were between 1.47 and 3.80 mg kg-1,
but the MnS of some samples were measured below the critical level of
soil (1.00 mg kg-1). Whereas Mn contents of leaves (MnL) were
obtained between 47.55 and 126.40 mg kg-1. The Mn contents
of grain (MnG) were obtained between 20.16 and 49.08 mg kg-1.
Direct correlation was found between MnL and MnG. But indirect correlations
between was found MnS and MnG. Correlation between MnL and MnG was significant
at the 0.01 level according to statistical analysis.
