Study of 15 bread wheat varieties commonly grown in Turkey (Triticum aestivum L.) was conducted in 2011–2012 and 2012–2013 growing seasons in Mardin to reveal the existing potentials in terms of macro and micro elements content. Grain yield and thousand seed weight of wheat were also examined. According to the combined analysis of two years data, Zn content of the varieties varied between 21.69 to 37.06 mg kg–1; Fe content 25.41–43.38 mg kg–1; Mn content 27.38–42.98 mg kg–1.Varieties had different contents in terms of the macro elements, Ca content in terms of macro elements varied between 590.3 and 999.5 mg kg–1, Mg content was 907.2 to 1115 mg kg–1 and K content ranged between 2250 and 3242.5 mg kg–1. The highest grain yield was obtained with 3920 kg ha–1 from Sonmez variety. Significant correlations were detected between Fe and grain yield (0.48*), C (0.63*), Mg (0.81**), K (0.54*); C and K (0.73**), Mg (0.64**), Zn (0.63*); Mn and Mg (0.55*), P (0.66**); Zn with Ca (0.80**), K (0.63 *), Mg (0.77 **) and Na and Ca (0.61*). It has been identified that Pehlivan, Osmaniyem and Altana varieties can be used in the studying of increasing the nutritional value of wheat grain since it has been identified as having high value in terms of macro and micro elements contents grain yield and thousand seed weight. © 2015, Scibulcom Ltd.
