Effect of Foliar Nutrition on Nigella sativa L. Plants Cultivated under Ammonium Sulfate Treatments

Khalid A. Khalid and Aisha M.A. Ahmed

Abstract:
The effects of Ammonium Sulfate (AS), Foliar Nutrition (FN) and their interaction on the growth and chemical constituents of Nigella sativa L. (N. sativa) were investigated. The highest plant growth characters [Plant Height (PH) (cm), Leaf Number (LN) (plant–1), Branch Number (BN) (plant–1), Capsule Number (CN) (plant–1), Herb Dry Weight (HDW) (plant–1) and Seed Yield (SY) (g plant–1)] were obtained in the 3 g pot–1 of AS+FN treatment with values of 27.7, 30; 46.9, 38.7; 9.3, 8.9; 13.2, 11.3; 45.8, 43.6; 4.6, 5.1 during the first and second seasons, respectively. The highest accumulations of Fixed Oil (FO), Total Carbohydrates (TC), Soluble Sugars (SS), Crude Protein (CP), Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P) and potassium (K) contents were recorded at the highest AS level (3 g pot–1)+FN with the values of 27.7 and 27.5%; 36.3 and 27.3%; 16.3 and 8.7%; 27.8 and 25.1%; 2.7, 3.5%; 0.1%; 0.6, 0.8% during the first and second seasons, respectively.
