Abstract

In this study anatomical study is surveyed on 11 varieties of commercial Triticum aestivum L. Seed anatomy in the Poaceae family is one of the important taxonomic characters used recently. Anatomical studies of wheat have provided some important diagnostic features in coastal and coastal areas. Caryopsis seed of Triticum aestivum is a food source rich in starch. The seeds of 11 varieties were studied, measured and photographed, discussed and interpreted. Parts of the kernel; pericarp layer, testa layer, aleurone cell, endosperm layer, fold depth and gap width. According to the data obtained from this study; different measurements have been made in varieties, and it is thought that the dimensions of cells, layers and other structures can be used in the differentiation of varieties in some respects. According to the data obtained from this study; Different measurements have been made in varieties, and it is thought that the dimensions of cells, layers and other structures can be used in the differentiation of varieties in some respects. With this study, seed micromorphology of 11 different wheat varieties used commercially for the first time was determined.
