Comparative efficiency of P-Carriers in Saline Sodic Soil

S.M. Mehdi, N. Sajjad, M. Sarfraz, R. Ahmad, M. Asghar and G. Hassan

Abstract

The results indicated that grain and straw yields, P concentration in grain and P uptake by grain and straw was increased significantly over control by the application of different sources of phosphorus. All the sources remained at par with each other in all the characteristics studied. However a careful scrutiny of the data showed maximum grain straw yields, P concentration in grain and straw and P uptake by grain and straw were with TSP followed by SSP, N/P and DAP. TSP appears a better source of phosphorus in mildly saline sodic soil.
