In the present study, an attempt has been made to investigate the effect of seaweed liquid fertilizer of S. polycystum on the seed germination growth, yield, biochemical and pigment characteristics of C. cajan. The 0.50% concentration of both water and alcohol extract showed better results of seed germination, growth parameters, biochemical and pigments constitutions. The lowest concentration (0.50%) showed higher seed germination (99.12±6.03%), shoot length (18.51±2.52 cm), root length (6.96±0…

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,

Seaweed liquid extracts of marine alga Stoechospermum marginatum significantly enhanced the growth, biochemical and yield of the cluster plant when treated as soil drench. Seaweed Liquid extracts
Effect of foliar spray from seaweed liquid fertilizer of Ulva reticulata (Forsk.) on Vigna mungo L. and their elemental composition using SEM – energy dispersive spectroscopic analysis
The data generated from study reveal that SLF of U. reticulatea could be used as foliar spray at low concentration of 2% to maximize the growth and yield of V. mungo and also increase the number of stomata in the leaf.
Effects of Sargassum latifolium Extract on Growth, Oil Content and Enzymatic Activities of Rosemary Plants under Salinity Stress
In the present study, a pot experiment was conducted during 2011-2012 to study the effect of foliar application of seaweed extract (SWE) Sargassum latifolium at (0.00, 0.20, 0.40 and 0.60%), alone or
Phytochemical screening of Sargassum sp and in vitro seed germination test
The aim of the present paper is to evaluate the phytochemical screening of Sargassum sp and also to investigate the effect of its crude extracts on seed germination and seedling development of
Synergetic effect of combination of Gracilaria dendroides extract and Azospirillum lipoferaum on growth and yield of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.)
It could be concluded that SWLE in combination with A. l ipoferaum suspension could serve as cost effective eco -friendly product for sustainable agricul ture.
Preparation and evaluation of liquid fertilizer from Turbinaria ornata and Ulva reticulata
The results suggest that the T. ornata and U. reticulata derived SLF could be an effective alternative to chemical fertilizers and warrant further research to investigate its possible use on field.
Influence of Some Brown Seaweed Extracts on Germination and Cytological Responses of Trigonella foenum-graecum L.
The results suggest that cytotoxic effect of high concentration of seaweeds extract may be due to accumulation of their phenolic content and suggest that seaweeds can be exploited for stimulation the growth of economic crops instead of chemical fertilizers.
