Early and Total Yield Enhancement of the Globe Artichoke Using an Ecofriendly Seaweed Extract-Based Biostimulant and PK Fertilizer

This study evaluated the effect of phosphorus and potassium (PK) fertilizer levels and foliar seaweed extract on early and total yield productivity and the growth of globe artichoke plants. Field

The use of seaweed as a bio-fertilizer: Does it influence Proline and Chlorophyll concentration in plants treated?

The results suggest that plants grown in media with seaweed were confronted with a low stress compared with those grown under control, which results in a better growth.

Effect of Seaweed Extract, Humic Acid and Chemical Fertilizers on Morphological, Physiological and Biochemical Characteristics of Trigonella foenum-graecum L.

Modern agriculture is searching for new biotechnologies that would allow for a reduction in the use of chemical inputs without negatively affecting crop yield or farmers' income. Seaweed extract and

Influence of Seaweed Liquid Fertilizer (SLF) on seed germination and seedling growth of some crop plants

Investigations were made to find out the effect of seaweed liquid fertilizer (SLF) prepared from the green alga, Caulerpa taxifolia on seed germination and seedling growth pulses, cereals and oil

Effect of Seaweed Extract (Sargassum tenerrimum) on Seed Germination and growth of Tomato Plant (Solanum lycopersicum)

Agriculture is the backbone of our country. Now-a-days synthetic fertilizers were mostly used in agriculture when compared with bio-fertilizers. Prolonged usage results in diminishing soil fertility,

Synergistic Effect of Seaweed Extract and Urea Fertilizer on Growth and Biochemical Parameters of Triticum aestivum at Vegetative Stage

This study was designed in order to investigate the Synergistic effect of seaweed extract ( Nizamuddinia zanardinii ) and urea fertilizer on growth and biochemical parameters of Triticum aestivum at

Development of Seaweed Liquid Fertilizer (SLF) Consortium for the Enhancement of Agriculturally Important Crop Plants

Four different consortium of seaweed liquid fertilizer (SLF) were prepared in different concentrations to determine their plant growth promoting ability in agriculturally important crop plants such as, Green gram, Black gram, Mustard and Paddy to enhance crop yield.



Effect of seaweed liquid extract of Caulerpa scalpelliformis on growth and biochemical constituents of black gram (Vigna mungo (L.) Hepper)

The SLE showed better responses at lower concentration when compared to control and higher concentrations showed declining trend, while the overall growth of Vigna mungo decreased.

Effect of Seaweed Liquid Fertilizer on Growth and Pigment Concentration of Cyamopsis tetrogonolaba (L) Taub

The present study found that 20% SLF with or without chemical fertilizer shows the higher growth, yield, chlorophyll pigment and soil profile compared to other concentration.


The effect of seaweed extract prepared from Ulva reticulata on seed germination, seedling growth an d chlorophyllase activity of Vigna mungo L. was studied. 100% germination was recorded in the seeds

Effect of seaweed liquid extract on growth and yield of Triticum aestivum var. Pusa Gold

It is demonstrated that seaweed liquid extract could serve as an alternative biofertilizer as is eco-friendly, cheaper, deliver substantial economic and environmental benefits to farmers.

Significance of Seaweed Liquid Fertilizers for Minimizing Chemical Fertilizers and Improving Yield of Arachis hypogaea under Field Trial

Efficacy of different concentrations of Seaweed Liquid Fertilizers (SLFs) obtained from the brown seaweed Sargassum wightii Grev. and green seaweed Ulva lactuca L, was made on Arachis hypogaea under

Studies on the Effect of Sargassum polycystum (C.Agardh, 1824) Extract on the Growth and Biochemical Composition of Cajanus cajan (L.) Mill sp

The 0.50% concentration of both water and alcohol extract showed better results of seed germination, growth parameters, biochemical and pigments constitutions, and the minimum biochemical composition such as protein (1.187%±0.047%), lipid (2.573%±1.050%) and carbohydrate (4.987%± 0.411%) was recorded at 1.5% concentration.

Effect of a Seaweed Extract on the Productivity of 'de Nules' Clementine Mandarin and Navelina Orange

Seaweed extract from Ascophyllum nodosum was applied to trees of ‘de Nules’ clementine mandarin and Navelina orange at bud sprouting, at full bloom and at the end of the June drop, increasing the yield and reducing the fruit weight.

Rapid bioassays to evaluate the plant growth promoting activity of Ascophyllum nodosum (L.) Le Jol. using a model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh

The results suggest that A. thaliana could be used effectively as a rapid means to test the bioactivity of seaweed extracts and fractions and provide evidence that components of the commercial A. nodosum extracts modulates the concentration and localisation of auxins which could account for the enhanced plant growth.

Seaweed: Promising plant of the millennium

In order to harness the rich potential of seaweeds in India, the present limited use needs to be diversified into other contemporary areas of application and the need to implement biotechnological tools for sustainable management of seaweed resources is highlighted.
