Olcay Bozdoğan, Sibel Uygur, 2019, 22(2):145-151
Abstract:The study was carried out on Rhinocyllus conicus Froel. (COLEOPTERA: Curculionidae) and Larinus latus Herbst (COLEOPTERA: Curculionidae) identified on Milk Thistle [Silybum marianum (L.) Gaertner] to investigate their host under natural conditions in the Çukurova Region in 2010 and 2011. The surveys were conducted in five different directions: Karataş - Tuzla, Ceyhan - Yumurtalık, İmamoğlu - Kozan, Tarsus - Mersin and Çatalan - Karaisalı. Milk thistle [(Silybum marianum (L.) Gaertner], and related species including italian thistle (Carduus pycnocephalus L.), scottish thistle (Onopordum spp.), purple star thistle (Centaurea calcitrapa L.), globe thistle (Echinops spp.), syrian thistle [Notobasis syriaca (L.) Cass.], yellow starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis L.), yellow plumed thistle [Cirsium acarna (L.) Moench.], Sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.), artichoke (Cynara scolymus L.) and safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) plants were examined for promising natural enemies under natural conditions. As a result of the studies; it was determined that controlled 500 milk thistle plants were infested by L. latus at a rate of 56.60% and R. conicus at 56.80% and, they were not found on the other plants controlled in 2010. In 2011, 500 milk thistle plants were also checked. The infestation rate of L. latus on the weed was 52.20% and R. conicus was 66.80% and, these insects were not found on the other plants. This shows us that both natural enemies prefer only the milk thistle under natural conditions, and therefore they are promising natural enemies.

Zahir Muhammad, Naila Inayat, Rasool Khan, Muhammad Qurada, Rehman Ullah, Abdul Majeed, 2019, 22(2):153-157
Abstract: In a laboratory experiment, the herbicidal potential of poplar leaves was evaluated against six weed species that are Avena fatua, Phalaris minor, Rumex dentatus, Parthenium hysterophorus, Lepidium sativum and Silybum marianum. Aqueous extract of Populus nigra leaves’ powder obtained at 10, 15, and 20 g concentrations were used as treatments for testing germination and seedling growth responses of the target weed species. Germination and growth of all six weeds species were reduced with increasing concentration of the leaves. Results suggests the potential role of this plant’s extracts in the management of weeds; however, more work is needed to be conducted for identification of the allelochemicals present in poplar plant which exhibit inhibitory activities against seed germination and growth parameters of test plants.

Identity of the Casuarina sp. in Turkey
Ian Timothy RILEY, Leyla Nur KORKMAZ, 2019, 22(2):159-168
Abstract: Sheoaks (Casuarina sp.) are a common ornamental and amenity trees grown in provinces of Turkey along the Mediterranean and Aegean coasts. In the literature this species is identified as Casuarina equisetifolia L., however, recent field observations have brought this into doubt. Qualitative and quantitative characters for 14 specimens (7 female and 7 male) collected from Izmir, Dalaman, Adana and Ceyhan, indicated that the correct determination is Casuarina cunninghamiana Miq. This is a new record for Turkey for a species that is considered an invasive woody weed in up to 20 countries. However, as this species has been grown in Turkey of many decades and there is no evidence of naturalization, it is not considered to represent a potential threat and no immediate management action is considered necessary.

Abstract: This study was carried out to evaluate the antibacterial effects of methanolic extracts of Grindelia robusta, Rhus coriaria, Alchemilla vulgaris, Juglans spp., Malva sylvestris, Saponaria officinalis, Prunella vulgaris, and Tanacetum vulgare against Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis (Cmm) and Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato (Pst). The plant extracts were added to King B medium before being autoclaved to reach concentrations of 0,06, 0,125, 0,25, 0,5, 1, 1,5, 2%. The solidified King B medium was inoculated with the 100 µl of inoculums (1x106 cells/ml) and incubated at 27 °C for two days. Control was maintained in pure King B. The experiment was repeated twice with five replication. At the end incubation periods, bacterial concentrations were measured in the spectrophotometer. The obtained results indicated that 1,5% and 2% extracts of all plants were inhibited both of the test bacteria. Especially Grindelia robusta and Rhus coriaria extracts caused the highest effect on Cmm and Pst. Also, 0,25% extract of Alchemilla vulgaris displayed 76% and 96% growth inhibition on Cmm and Pst, respectively. Also, in the other plants inhibition rates increased depending of increase of consantration. As a result, it was determined that plant extracts used in the study had antibacterial effect on Cmm and Pst and these extracts of plants were found as promising in control of these disease.

Bahadır ŞİN, İzzet Kadıoğlu, 2019, 22(2):211-217
Abstract: As parallel to population growth demand for food sources increase day by day. Despite presence of several management methods plant protection agents cause significant yield loss. Among all weeds are consiredered as the leading factors. Even though through years weeds were controlled with several methods, the utilization of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and the development of drone and image processing techniques is important for development of management methods after detection, identification, observation and density determination of weed. The utilization of UAH can not only be used in detection and density estimation studies but also herbicide application which will promote economic control and minimize risk to environment. In this paper the improtance of UAH in weed control is reviewed.
