THE ROLE OF FOLIAR APPLICATION OF SEAWEED EXTRACT , UNIGREEN AND THEIR INTERACTION ON GROWTH AND YIELD OF EGGPLANT IN PLASTIC HOUSES.

Abstract

An experiment was conducted during winter growing season of 2014 - 2015 in unheated plastic house condition at department of horticulture in Agriculture Collage – University of Kerbala . The research was to study the role of foliar spraying of two types from nutrients in four doses as well and their interaction on growth and yield in egg plant One nutrient was Seaweed 100% simple A litter and two nutrient was Unigreen simple B litter . An experiment included sixteen treatments interaction between two nutrients (4x4), four dose for one liquid dose (0 , 1 , 2 , 3 ml . L-1) and some that for second liquid , Results showed that spraying (3 + 3 ml . L-1)from liquids caused significant increase in all vegetative growth giving higher results in yield per a plant and total yields (7.444 kg . plant-1 , 7.146 tone) respectively , yield and fruits quality , but reduced the percentage compound to the control treatment which gave (2.975 kg . plant-1 , 2.856 tone) respectively
