Trakya Ilkeren is an early maturing table grape cultivar for some regions of Turkey. Sometimes, quality characteristics of early maturing of table grapes, which is desired by grower can’t adequately occur. Recently, seaweed extracts have been used for different purposes in agriculture. In present study, different doses of a seaweed extract were used for enhancing table quality characteristics of cv. Trakya Ilkeren. As a result, although different doses of seaweed extract represented varying effects on grapevine yield and table grape quality of cv. Trakya Ilkeren; 1000 and 3000 ppm seaweed treatments particularly gave the best results for the table grape quality.
