Combined effect of gamma radiation and potassium fertilization on growth and coloring matter contents of Roselle (Hibiscus Sabdariffa L.)

Abstract

Field experiment was conducted to study the interaction effect of gamma radiation (0,20, 40 and 80 gray) and potassium fertilization (0, 50, 100, and 150 kg K{sup 2S}o{sup 4/}fed.) on roselle plant. Plant samples were taken during vegetative, flowering and fruit growth stages and the dry weights were recorded. Total carbohydrates were determined in the leaves, however, coloring matters and flavones content were estimated in the sepals. The obtained data showed that most of the applied treatments had the capacity to stimulate plant growth and in turn enhanced the dry matter production. In this concern, irradiation dose of 40 gray and fertilizer level of 100 kg K{sup 2S}O{sup 4/}fed induced the most pronounced effect. On the other hand, the chemical constituents analysis showed minor changes in their levels which indicated slight response to the applied treatments. 6 tabs.
