Correlation of Manganese Contents of Soils and Wheat Plants (Triticum spelta) in the Cukurova Region of Turkey
S. Irmak and H. Vapur

Abstract:
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.
