Effect of Some Soil Amendments and Foliar Spray of Salicylic and Ascorbic Acids on Sorghum Under Saline Calcareous Soil Conditions

Abdel-Rahaman M.A. Merwad and Mohamed K. Abdel-Fattah

Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted on a saline calcareous soil at El-Noubaria, near Alexandria, Egypt during the growth season of 2014 to study assess response to organic manure (chicken manure “ChM” and humic acid “HA”) and foliar sprays with salicylic acid “SA” and ascorbic acid “AA” on sorghum (Sorghum vulgare var.) sudanense regarding yield and other attributes. Treatments inducted 12 combinations of 4 organic applications (none, ChM, HA and ChM+HA) and three sprays (none, SA and AA). Main effects of organic amendment show the following order: ChM+HA>ChM>HA>Non-amended. Main effects of sprays show AA>SA>none sprayed. Regarding combination between soil amendments and antioxidants effects, data reveal the superiority of ChM+HA+AA over other all treatments.
