Title : EFFECTS OF LIGHT AND MOISTURE ON GROWTH AND MORPHOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF HORSECHESTNUT (Aesculus hippocastanum L.) SEEDLINGS IN THE WESTERN BLACKSEA REGION IN TURKEY
Abstract : The aim of study is determined of growty performances and changes of morphological characteristics of horse chesnut seedlings at different light and moisture conditions at the nursery stage. This research carried out greenhouse conditions in the Gökçebey Forest Nursey Directorate. In this context the same growing material (1/3san+1/3clay+1/3natural organic humic material) was created in the greenhouse field. The 4 different light (30%, 50%, 60% and 80%) and moisture (40%, 60%, 80% and 90%) conditions were attempted on seedlings of horse chestnut in the grenhouse conditions. the light of the results obtained from the research that a rapid growth of chestnut horse with the particularly responded quickly to changing light conditions, but can be continued until the response is determined about 80% intensity. On the other hand it reacts to changing humidity conditions against a chestnut horse, but was determined to show high growth in terms of numerical values, such as in this case, the light intensity. As well as root growth that the light intensity the resulting changes despite the rapidly increased to accommodate the growth that occurred and that this increase starts pause of approximately 70% light intensity, root length despite the changes in the moisture content was determined to continue to grow to about 90% moisture content. In this context light intensity of increased approximately 70% and performed upbringing process of horse chestnut trees in the moisture content up to 80%. However, both the bud growth, required for growth and development of fruit grown in 50% light 60% moisture content and their powerful and adaptations may be useful for the production of high horse chestnut trees.
