Extreme conditions in the climate play an important role on the plant growth and yield of crops. Meteorological drought is one of these extreme climate conditions. In this study, 16 days photosynthetic activity of pistachios was investigated by integrating both field research and modern techniques (remote sensing and statistical methods). Furthermore, the effects of climatic factors on the yield of pistachio were analysed. Along with the present study, the relationships between pistachio and dry and wet climatic conditions were presented. According to the results of the drought analysis of both Birecik (a district in the south-eastern parts of Turkey) and Gaziantep (a province in the southeastern parts of Turkey) stations, pistachio is significantly affected by extreme climatic conditions. The photosynthetic activity of pistachio increased during the periods of wet climatic conditions.
