Improvement of Growth, Physiology and Antioxidant System of Vicia faba by Algal Treatments

Eman Salah Esmail Aldaby

Background and Objective: chemical fertilizers cause damage to the environment and soil. Algae are used as an alternative to the chemical fertilizer for plant growth because they contain a high percentage of nutrients. In this study, algae used to improve the growth of Vicia faba. Materials and Methods: The algal treatments (Oscillatoria sp., Chlrococcum sp. and a mixture of two algae Oscillatoria sp. and Chlrococcum sp.) have been used in faba bean germination. Algae treatments enhanced the growth of faba bean through the improvement of the growth parameters as dry, fresh weight, carbohydrates, amino acids and protein contents. Carotenoid content was amplified by the algal applications (Chlorococcum, Oscillatoria and mixture of algae) respectively. Results: mixture of algae treatment enhanced antioxidant enzyme activities as catalase, ascorbate peroxidase enzyme of faba bean. Algal treatments improved the membrane stability and reduced of MDA. Conclusion: The algal mixture treatment is the hopeful treatment that was caused the most improvement in faba growth. The individual application of Oscillatoria sp. comes after the algal mixture for the improvement of faba bean.
