EFFECT OF MYCORRHIZA AND LICORICE ROOT EXTRACT ON GROWTH AND YIELD OF OKRA Abelmoschus esculentus L. CV.HASINAWI

Abstract

The experiment was carried in the Agricultural Research and Experiment Station - Faculty of Agriculture - Al-Muthanna University for the summer agricultural season 2019 to study the effect of mycorrhiza and spray with plant extracts on some morphological and physiological characteristics of the indigenous cultivar of Okra Hassinawi Varity. The study included two factorials , first one : 2 Varity of mycorrhiza with control (M0,M1,M2) , At 5 gm for each one and second factorial content four levels of licorice root extract 0 , 5 , 7.5 and 10 g.L-1 Randomized Completely Block Design (R.C.B.D) were used with three replicates. The means were compared according to L.S.D test at the level 0.05. The results showed the superiority of M2 in plant height 103.00 cm, number of leaves 72.25. Plant 1 -, leaf area 0.800 m 2, fresh weight of the vegetative growth 577.67 g, single plant yield 426.362 g and the percentage of fiber in fruits is 8.91%, L3 treatment was significantly creased the traits studied above 107.30 cm, 65.54 leaves. Plant -1, 0.784 m2, 584.25 g, 372.065 g, 8.15% respectively. The interaction between Mycorrhiza and licorice root extract was affected significantly on all characters
