Change in Some Hydrolytic and Oxidative Enzymes Activities of Jute Leaves under Different Foliar Treatments

Anwarul Islam, Abu Sayeed, Nurul Absar and Md. Ibrahim H. Mondal    

Abstract: An experiment was conducted to find out the enzymatic change in jute leaves under different foliar treatments in the experimental land of the Institute of Biological Sciences, Rajshahi University during the period of April-May, 2000-2001. The effect of NPK-fertilizers and cowdung as well as foliar spray of urea and chemicals on the changes in the enzyme contents of matured jute leaves was analyzed. It was found that the activities of all the experimental enzymes in the leaves from treated jute plants were increased significantly as compared to those in control ones. Of the enzymes examined, the activities of protease were found to be increased highest (93.33%), followed by cellulase (88.57%), invertase (87.50%) and so on in decreasing order.
