: Nutritional Status, Leaves, Bread Wheat, Bat Guano

Abstract

Pot experiment was carried out at greenhouse belongs to college of education-university of alanbar during winter season of 2013/2014 to investigate the effect of application of different levels of bat guano (0, 4 and 8gm) on some morphological and physiological traits for two bread wheat Triticum aestivum L. Cvs, one is local cv. (Aliz) another one is imported from Australia (Eratom). The experimental treatments were distributed underwith factorial experiment arrangement using completely randomized blocks with three replicates. Some nutritional status traits were measured as chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, total chlorophyll, carbohydrates, protein, N, P, K, Mg, Ca and Na content. Results revealed that bat guano application of 8gm was significantly superior in average of such as total chlorophyll of 6.53 mg.g-1, carbohydrate of 8.55 g.100g-1, protein of 8.87 g.100g-1, N of 1.32 g.100g-1, P of 0.46 g.100g-1, K of4.77 g.100g-1, Mg of 1.38 g.100g-1, Ca of 0.52 g.100g-1 and Na of 0.24 g.100g-1. It thus could be concluded that the application of bat guano at 8gm alone was the better than 4gm in some traits. However, the genetic affinity of local cv was dominated with 4gm application and of imported cv was to 8gm application. Therefore, it could be recommended to test the application of bat guano on the two cultivars across field environment
