Abstract


Response of tritordeum, ‘Bulel’ variety, on organic and inorganic fertilization was observed through a field experiment in Greece. So as to evaluate, a field experiment was set up in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) where blocks were four fertilizations (control, inorganic, manure, compost). Plant height was affected by fertilization. Thus height was ranged from 65 cm (control) to 71.75 cm (NPK). Concerning, kernel weight, control and the two organic fertilized did not differ. Both protein and gluten has a positive response to inorganic fertilization, values were 16.27 % and 33.45 % respectively. The increase in gluten is not a desirable trait as tritordeum is cultivated for lower gluten levels than wheat. Yield rised with fertilizers with the highest value of 4753.5 kg ha-1. In brief, as first results, there was a positive response of tritordeum to fertilization in the dry conditions of Greece. As far as ‘Bulel’ variety recently became commercial, consequently a few years to further investigate are needed.
