Effects of Some Plant Nutrients Applied to Seedbed Compost on Seedling Quality

Doç. Dr. Sıdıka Ekren [1] , Halil Buğra Yalman [2]



This study was carried out to determine the effects of some plant nutrients applied to seedbed compost on seedling quality in 2019 in the seedbed of Ege University, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Field Crops, in Turkey. In the trial Izmir-Ozbas tobacco variety was used and experimental design was Randomized Complete Parcel Design with three replications. In the study, lenght of the seedling (cm), number of the leaf (per/plant), stem diameter (mm), healthy seedlings per square (pcs/m2), lenght of the root (cm), fresh stem and root weight (g/plant), dry stem and root weight (g/plant) were evaluated. According to the results, the longest lenght of seedling and stem diameter was found in K2 doses (potassium doses: 400 g/parcel) as  20.5 cm and 4.1 mm, respectively. Besides, number of the leaf, healthy seedling per square and lenght of the root were 7.8-8.4 per/plant, 2.1-3.3 pcs/m2, 2.6-2.8 cm, respectively. Considering the results, as the amount of potassium applied increased, the amount of length of the seedling, stem diameter and length of the root increased as well.
