Effect of Gibberellic Acid Application Times on Earliness and Production of A-106 Artichoke Cultivar in Antalya Ecologic Conditions
Artichoke is one of the important vegetable crops in Mediterranean countries including Turkey. In our country, while artichoke production was undertaken in İzmir, Bursa and Yalova until 10 years ago, its area of production has broadened to include southern cities such as Antalya and Muğla. As early artichoke production, especially in Antalya region, is profitable for farmers, demand for growing this crop has increased. The present study investigated the effect of gibberellic acid application times (0, 1, 2, 3 and 4) on earliness and production of A-106 artichoke cultivar. The plants were grown in West Mediterrrenean Agricultural Research Institute in 2007-2008. The results show that GA3 applications are very effective to promote earliness in A-106 cultivar.
