Title: Effect of Different Soil Mixtures and Fertilizers on the Burning of Mango Seedlings (Mangifra indica L)
Author: Omer, Igbal El Habib Adam
Abstract: Two pot experiments were layed during the 1996 and 1997 seaons to test the effect of different soil mixture namely: Gerif soil, Gerif soil+ El Rawakeeb, Gerif soil + Shambat soil, Gerif soil + Soba soil and organic and inorganic fertilizers e.g. farm yard manures, saw dust, nitrogen, phosphorous and their combinations on the growth and mineral composition of the mango seedlings. The treatments were replicated four times. The results indicated that the organic fertilizers increased plant height, number of leaves, stem diameter, nitrogen, calcium, magnesium and sodium contents of mango seedlings. Phosphorous contents was significantly P<0.05 affected by the application of saw dust + N + P. The level of leaf potasium was unaffected by neither soil types nor the fertilizers used. Generally, the performance of mango seedlings was better in: 1- EI-Rawakeeb soil when mixed with Gerif soil + manure or nitrogen and phosphorous. 2- Gerif soil + organic manure or nitrogen and phosphorous, compared with the other soil mixtures and treatments.
