The effects of seaweed extracts and the applications of vermiwash on organic lettuce (Lactuva sativa L.) seedlings

Metin AYDIN [1] , Murat DEMİRSOY [2]


In this study, it is aimed to enhance organic seedling cultivation to levels at which it can compete with its conventional counterparts both in quality and growth process of the seedling. To this end, seaweed (SW) and vermiwash (V) were employed in the trial as well as their various doses and blends. 16 different doses and blends including the control group each of which were allocated three seedlings were conducted based on the triplicate principal. At the end of the process, the dry weight of the plants’ root, stem and leaves was identified. The rise in the dry weight of the root, stem and the leaves resulting from the raised doses of seaweed and vermiwash in individual practices has revealed the positive and direct outcomes of the fertilizers on the plant growth. Much as seaweed provided the lowest leaf weight ratio (LWR), it yields the highest LWR. The lowest root weight ratio (RWR) is 0.1671 in SW2 application, whereas the highest leaf weight is 0.8329 in SW2. As a result of the trials, SW3 application shines out on the basis of the total dry weight (0.3125 g) of the lettuce seedlings. In study highest quality index of seedlings (QI) was determined in SW3 applications (0.1787). With respect to the LWR properties, being an important criterion for the lettuce itself and the dry matter for the seedling quality, seaweed applications have been concluded to be advisable
