This study was carried out to determine the influence of water deficit on yield and yield components of winter wheat under Thrace conditions (Turkey). Four wheat genotypes (MV-17, Flamura 85, Saraybosna and Kate-A-1) were grown under five different water stress treatments during the 1998-99 and 1999-2000 growing seasons. The treatments included an unstressed control (S0), water stress at the late vegetative stage (S1), at the flowering stage (S2), or at the grain formation stage (S3) and full stress (non-irrigation S4). The effects of water stress treatments on grain yield and yield components were statistically significant compared with non-stressed conditions. Grain yield under non-irrigated conditions was reduced by approximately 40%. Among the genotypes, MV-17 gave the highest grain yield.
