Under increasing impacts of global warming, effective water use and using minimum amounts of water for irrigation have become the most critical issues to be considered in irrigated agriculture. In this research, effects of water stress on yield and some quality parameters of broccoli were investigated. Three different growing periods (early vegetative, late vegetative and flowering) and four different water deficit levels (80%, 60%, 40% and 20%) were applied to Maraton F1 broccoli cultivar. Yield per plant, total leaf area, total chlorophyll, total sugar content, and antioxidant activity have been determined. While a yield of 667,84 g/plant was obtained from control treatment with 100% irrigation without any water deficit, a yield of only 101,59 g/plant was obtained from 20% irrigation treatment. However, a yield of 591,01 g/plant was obtained from 80% irrigation treatment applied at early vegetative period.
