This study was conducted in the experimental field of the Faculty of Agriculture at Eskişehir Osmangazi University in 2022. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of different organic and inorganic fertilizers (compound fertilizer, vermicompost fertilizer, bat guano, bacterial application, and commercial organic liquid fertilizers such as Micro and Forceful) together with a control application on the morphological and yield criteria of organically grown anise plants under dry conditions in Eskişehir.
There was no statistically significant difference in plant height and essential oil content. Umbel number, seed yield per plant, seed yield per decare, and thousand seed weight parameters were found to be statistically significant at the 5% level. The highest umbel number (13.93), seed yield per plant (1.17 g/plant), seed yield per decare (46.8 kg/da), and thousand seed weight (3.43 g) were obtained from the Micro application. The highest essential oil content (4.56%) was obtained from the Micro application, and the lowest (3.92%) was obtained from the compound fertilizer application. The trans-anethole ratio, which is the most important component of essential oil, was determined to be 89.4-91.5%, and the highest ratio was obtained from the bat guano application.
