Abstract

This research was conducted to determine the effect of changes of certain minerals (Ca, Mg, Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn) in salicylic acid doses on different wheat varieties (Dogu-88, Altay-2000, Bezostaya-1, Alparslan and Tir mixed population) in drought stress. Drought was created in plants by irrigating 40% of field capacity. It was found that plants were differently responding to drought of mineral accumulation. 1 mM kg-1 dose of salicylic acid, compared to 0.1 mM kg-1 dose significantly increased the mineral content in flag leaf of all varieties to be statistically. The increase was found to be highest in Bezostaya 1 and Altay-2000 varieties. This research has shown that mineral contents are significantly decreased with the drought in wheat varieties, and it was concluded that salicylic acid treatment affected to all varieties positively although this effect is different according to the varieties.
