Contrary to the continuous increase in the world population, there is a constant decrease in arable areas. This situation has led to the necessity of using existing agricultural yards in the most effective way. As a matter of fact, when the production figures are examined, an increase in crop production is observed despite the decrease in agricultural areas. This is only possible by increasing productivity per unit area. The most important factor in increasing productivity was the introduction of new developed varieties into agricultural production. However, in parallel, farmers have also developed cultural practices that lead to increased productivity in agricultural production. However, recent deteriorations in natural resources and ecosystem balance have led to questioning the reliability of current practices.
