Özet

The rapid growth of the world population also increases the amount of food needed for the human being's life. Therefore, applications that increase productivity and through which production can be made throughout the year in plant production come to the forefront in the world. In this context, one of the most important activities is greenhouse cultivation through which production can be made throughout the year by keeping climate conditions under control. Greenhouses are climate-controlled plant production structures in which indoor environment conditions can be controlled and can be kept in accordance with growing conditions. Heating must be performed during the winter period in greenhouses if it is desired to make production throughout the year. In Turkey, almost all of greenhouse production is performed in the Mediterranean region, and the production areas are situated in a relatively limited area in the Southeastern Anatolia Region. In this study, 10-year climate data (Maximum, Minimum and Average Temperature, Humidity, Sunshine Duration and Amounts) of 5 provinces (Diyarbakir, Mardin, Siirt, Batman and Sirnak) in the Tigris basin were achieved by considering the climatic conditions and production capacity of Antalya province, which has the most production areas in Turkey. According to the results obtained, the average minimum temperature for each month showed a statistically significant difference according to the provinces (p<0.01). Consequently, while the highest heating load was 1852.836 W/m(2) for a greenhouse of 576 m(2) for Antalya province in January during which heating requirement is the maximum, 3887.13 W/m(2) and 5615 W/m(2) heating load differences were obtained from Mardin and Diyarbakir provinces, respectively.
