Abstract:
Salicornia experiments on saline ingressed coastal soils were conducted in field during July-Aug (Kharif season) of 2003-04 at CSMCRI`s experimental site, Hathab on native species to investigate make improvements in agronomic criteria and allow species cultivation sustainable so to recover its` high valued vegetable salt and oil per unit of salt affected area. An application of N upto 100 kg ha-1 had significantly increased the seed yield (29 and 87%) and plant biomass (29 and 51%), over 75 and 0 kg N ha-1, respectively. Plant characters like canopy, spike length, number of segments and harvest index were also found increased with the increase in N application. An application of 75 kg P2O5 ha-1 was also found significant with an achievement in higher seed yield production (48%) and number of spike segments (43%) over the control. The interaction study between the applied doses of N x P was found significant at highest fertilizer levels (N2 x P2) and produced maximum seed yield over the control but remain and at par in case of plant biomass. The plant nitrogen content in biomass (spike+seed) though found increased with N application but has remained at par in case of P application. Nitrogen and potassium content and uptakes were found increased significantly with N application. The plant density had a significant effect on yield, biomass and other important yield attributes. Plant canopy increased significantly during different phases of growth. The potential usefulness of S. brachiata for agricultural producers in coastal semi-arid zones has been shown elsewhere; suggest that the establishment and growth of this halophyte can be experimentally improved using proper fertilization and optimum density.
