Abstract

This study was conducted in Ceylanpinar State Farm in Sanliurfa province of Turkey. The aim of the study was to determine influence of pollens of 3 different pollinators on the nut quality of 'Kirmizi', 4 different pollinators on 'Siirt' and 2 different pollinators on 'Ohadi' cultivars. Three different male types (Male 1, 16 and 23) synchronized to 'Kirmizi', 4 different male types (Male 7, 12, 13 and 25) synchronized to 'Siirt' and 2 male types (Male 18 and 22) synchronized to 'Ohadi' cultivars were used as pollinators and open pollination was used as control. Pomological characteristics were compared to determine the nut quality with respect to the used pollinators on the nuts. 100 nuts weight, split nut ratio, kernel ratio, blank nut ratio, kernel oil and protein content were determined as quality characteristics.
