Özet

In this study, possibilities of using wheatgrass juice, as an encouraging or activator of seedling growth on corn, were investigated. In order to obtain grass juice, wheat seeds (bread wheat) were sown in plastic boxes and were harvested on the 10th day. Wheatgrass juice was obtained by using an electronic juicer. Pots with 10-15 cm diameter were filled with perlite+peat mixture and three corn seeds were sown into each pot. Fresh wheatgrass juice was used to irrigate the corn seeds and tap water was used for control pots. Seedlings were removed and washed at the end of 30th day. Stem and root lengths and weights of the seedlings were determined.
