PAS 1:

"Tobacco-waste obtained from Tokat cigarette factory was applied at different rates to see the effect of tobacco waste on the growth and N content of wheat crop. % Ndff (N-fertilizer), % NdfT (Tobacco-waste) and Nitrogen Recovery percent of tobacco-waste were determined by 15N trace technique. Increasing rates of tobacco-waste together with nitrogen fertilization increased the dry matter yield of wheat crop from 8.78 to 14.01 grams/pot (40 tons/ha). The increase in N content of wheat crop at these rates increased from 1.47 to 2.09%, whereas, total N uptake increased from 131.43 mg to 293.68 mg/pot. Increasing rates of tobacco-waste increased the percent nitrogen derived from tobacco-waste (NdfT) from 25.19 (at 10 tons/ha) to 59.34 (at 40 tons/ha), whereas the % Ndff increased from 8.93 (20 kg N/ha) to 23.95 (at 80 kg N/ha). Maximum nitrogen recovery percentage obtained from tobacco-waste was about 11.28. [Brohi A.R., Aydeniz A., Karaman M.R.
