Zastosowanie efektywnych mikroorganizmów (EM) w uprawie truskawki
USED OF EFFECTIVE MICROORGANISMS IN STRAWBERRY CULTIVATION
Languages of publication
Preparations based on micro-organisms may complement the currently known means of agricultural production. Microbial preparations usually use the phenomenon of antagonism between the pathogen and the beneficial organism. These preparations are often called as growth promoters. Investigations on the use of EM and different methods of their applications were conducted in 2011-2012 on strawberries cv. Honeoye. The effectiveness of treatments was evaluated on the basis of the fresh weight of the aerial parts of plants and the number of runners of the selected 10 plants from each plot and the yield. Chlorophyll was also evaluated as a quantitative and qualitative analysis of content in plants treated with EM. After 6 applications of EM increased of weight of strawberry aboveground parts was noted. Increasing the concentration to 10% did not result in improvement of the parameters of plant growth, or increase in the number of runners. The use of higher frequency of treatments did not affect the improvement of plant growth. Similar trends were observed for yield. There was no effect of EM treatment on the content of chlorophyll.
