The findings should be discussed, but unnecessary repetitions should be avoided. The similarities and differences of the findings with other studies should be given and the reasons should be discussed.
Acknowledgement: If necessary, such acknowledgement should be made as short as possible, along with the relevant contribution.
Abbreviations and Symbols Abbreviations should be avoided in general. Abbreviations and symbols should be explained when they are first used in the text. Internationally recognized and established abbreviations should be preferred. Abbreviations should not be used in the title of the article.

Figures and Tables
Figures, graphics, photographs, etc. should be specified as “Figure” while numerical values should be specified as “Table”. All figures and tables should be placed at the end of the article. Figures and tables should be up to 16×20 cm in single page layout and 8 cm in double column layout. The size of the figures and tables should allow printing. Photographs, which do not present research result comparison, should not be included in the article. The pictures supporting the research results should be in 600 dpi resolution and in “jpg, pdf and tiff” format. Grayscale images should be preferred over color images. Vertical lines should not be used in the tables. Each table and figure should be cited first within the text and should be given after citation. All tables and figures are numbered sequentially throughout the article. (Table 1. and Figure 1.). Table and figure titles and descriptions should be concise. Table headings should be at the top of the table and figure headings should be below the figure. English titles of tables and figures should be written in italics just below the Turkish title. Figures should not contain horizontal and vertical guidelines and numbers, but small letters can be given only if they are given for statistical comparison. If abbreviations are used in tables and figures, these abbreviations should be explained just below. Drawing tools, figures or pictures consisting of different parts should be grouped. Variety and species names should be written in italics.
SI units should be used in all articles SI (Systeme International d’Units). Point should be used for decimal fraction.(E.g. instead of 1,25, use 1.25). “/” should not be used in units, instead there should be a space between units.(E.g. instead of 3 m/s, use 3 m s-1, e.g. 4 kg N ha-1)
Formulas should be numbered and the formula number should be shown in parentheses right justified, next to the formula. Formulas should be written in 12 pt, the main components and variables should be italicized, whereas numbers and mathematical expressions should not be formatted in terms of typographical emphasis. If cited within the text, it should be given as “Equation 1” (… relevant model, Equation 1).
