is located at the intersection of the eastern Marmara, the northern Aegean, the
western Black Sea and the Central Anatolia region in Turkey. This section is
known as gateway section in which different climate conditions exist. There is
a wide range of plant population in this section. Besides, Bilecik has a great
chance on agricultural production, if these advantages are correctly harnessed.
Greenhouses are used for delivering the production during all year around.
Geographic location, plant species diversity, proximity to Istanbul, the
increase of the greenhouse will raise the importance of Bilecik. The data about
the greenhouse area, greenhouse types, the distribution of greenhouses to
county, product pattern and multi-year climate data (monthly number of sunny
days, minimum and maximum temperature, mean temperature) in Bilecik are
reviewed. The success of a greenhouse depends on many factors. It is difficult
to guess the means for developing the potential of the greenhouse in Bilecik.
The aim of this study is presenting the relevant data about greenhouses and
reviewing the actual status of greenhouses in Bilecik.
