Impact of Superabsorbent Polymer on Yield and Growth Analysis of Soybean (Glycine max L.) Under Drought Stress Condition

Firouzeh Yazdani, Iraj Allahdadi and Gholam Abas Akbari

Abstract:
The aim of present study is evaluation of the effect of four rates of superabsorbent polymer (0, 75, 150 and 225 kg haG1) and three irrigation intervals (6, 8 and 10 days) on growth and yield of soybean (cult. L11) under field conditions. The results of this study showed that there was a significant effect among irrigation intervals on seed yield, Total Dry Matter (TDM), Leaf Area Index (LAI), Crop Growth Rate (CGR), plant height and Harvest Index (HI). Moreover, The highest increase in seed yield, Total Dry Matter (TDM), Leaf Area Index (LAI), Crop Growth Rate (CGR) and Harvest Index (HI) were achieved at 225 kg haG1 polymer compared with the control (without polymer). These results indicate that application of superabsorbent polymer at 225 kg haG1 appeared to increase all the above growth and yield attributes.

Dr. Ayyad Al -Shahwany:
Hi
Please I would like to know if we can using superabsorbent polymer coated with Azotobacter before adding to the field soil?
we are working in college of sciences/University of Baghdad to using these polymer as Bio-fertilizer application on Growth and Yield of Wheat Triticum aestivum L.
I hope to haring from you some ides about this work soon.
Regards,

Prof Ayyad Al-Shahwany,PhD,Plant Physiology
