Abstract/Summary

The present study investigates the application SALTMED model in predication of dry matter, yield, soil moisture and soil salinity level of greenhouse pepper (Capsicum annuum) experiment from Antalya, Turkey. In the greenhouse experimental study, the effects of different irrigation regime with salinity treatments using drip irrigation system were investigated. Irrigation regimes consisted of four irrigation treatments with four salinity levels. SALTMED model was calibrated using soil moisture data of the control experiment. After the calibration, the model was validated using the other experimental treatments. Results show the ability of the model to reproduce the measured soil moisture at three soil layers 0-20 cm, 20-40 cm and 40-60 cm. The simulated results are also seen to capture the salinity level during irrigation in these soil layers. Preliminary results of total dry matter and yield are showing good agreement.
