Field Evaluation of Some Cut Flower as Affected by Irrigation Water Quantity and Fertilizers

M.A.M. El-Mekawy

Farmers of Mediterranean countries are more confronted to water scarcity to Productivity of ornamental plants under the conditions of sandy soil. Irrigation systems and choosing the suitable method of fertilizer application is one of likely decisions to optimizing their irrigation and fertilizers strategies. The effect of irrigation water quantity (400, 600 and 800 m3/fed.) and different rates (0.0, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5%) of complete fertilizer on the growth rate, flowering characters and plant nutritional for Xerochrysum bracteatum Vent., Acroclinium roseum Hook. and Statice sinuate Mix. Plants was studies at the Experimental Farm of the Faculty of Environmental Agriculture Science, El-Arish, during two winter seasons (2010/2011 and 2011/2012). Results showed in most cases that application of irrigation water at level of (800 m3/fed.) being the most effective and favorable treatment on increasing plant growth rate and flowering characters per plant and unit area. Application of complete fertilizer at the rates (1.0%) through irrigation water recorded the maximum values of plant growth rate, total carbohydrates, plant nutritional status and flowering characters. The interaction between the two factors of study in general, reflect significant effect on most studied parameters except few characters which were fluctuated in the two seasons.
