Abstract

The experiment was carried out at the research center of Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University in Turkey in summer of 2010 and 2011 to determine the effects of hydrogel (organic polymer) on the grain yield and plant development parameters. Maize DKC 5783, a commonly used variety by farmers in Turkey, was used as an indicator plant and the seeds were sowed to different lysimeters having a volume of 1 m(3).
