Impact of Some Organic Manure with Chemical Fertilizers on Growth, Yield of Broad Bean (Vicia faba L.) Grown in Newly Cultivated Land

Full Text PDF


The possibility of improving growth and yield of broad bean (Vicia faba L.) plants grown in newly cultivated land was conducted during the two successive seasons of 2018 and 2019. For achieving this aim, broad bean plants were fertilized with different rates of organic fertilizers (poultry or farmyard manures) and minerals (NPK). Different growth parameters, chemical constituent and yield were determined in this study. The results indicated that organic fertilized plants achieved higher values of different growth parameters (plant height, number of branches, plant leaf lets blade area and dry weight / plant) and yield and its components (number of pods / plant, no of seeds / pod, weight of seeds / pod, weight of 100 seeds and weight of seeds / plant). The best results were obtained when the plants were fertilized with high rate of poultry manure (8 tons) and NPK fertilizers (50 kg ammonium nitrate 33.5% + 200 kg superphosphate 15.5% + 50 kg potassium Sulphate 48%). The present results also show that the concentration of chlorophyll. A, b, carotenoids, crude proteins, total free amino acids, total carbohydrates, total sugars, reducing sugars an non soluble carbohydrates recorded the higher values in both leaves and seeds of those plants fertilized with either poultry or farmyard manures when compared with those fertilized with NPK. The present study clearly shows that the best effect was recorded by supplying the plants with poultry manure(8 tons + NPK nutrients (50 kg ammonium nitrate 33.5% + 200 kg superphosphate 15.5% + 50 kg potassium Sulphate 48%).
