Effect of magnetig irrigation water and phosphorus fertilization on growth and yield of eheat


A field experimental was carried out at the experimental farm of the Department of Field Crops Science, College of Agriculture, Abu-Ghraib during 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 seasons to study the effect of magnetic irrigation water and phosphorus fertilizer levels on the growth and yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum L. Var. Abu-Ghraib-3). The experiment design was a split–plot in RCBD with three replications. the main plot were allocated for the magnetotron treatments (i. e Magnetic and without Magnetic) and the sub plots for the P fertilizer levels (0, 50, 75 and 100) Kg P2O5 ha-1. The results showed that the magnetic water was superior in plant height , flag leaf area, biological yield, and grain yield compared with plants non magnetic irrigated water. Application of phosphorus fertilizer caused a significant increase on all plant componants in both seasons. Interaction between magnetic water treatment and 100 Kg P2O5 ha-1 level significantly increased plant height with 113.90, 117.21 cm, flag leaf area 30.30, 32.40 with cm2 Biological. Yield 11.96, 12.95 T ha-1, grain yield 4.50, 4.84 T ha-1 and P concentration of plant 2.51, 2.72 gm P kg-1 dry matter compared with treatment without magnetic water and non phosphorus addition in both season respectively.
