CPU 2015-6: The Effects of Soil Application of Biofertilizers on the Early Growth of Beauty Leaf

This study was carried-out to determine the early growth response of Beauty Leaf (Calophyllum inophyllum L.) to five biofertilizers, namely, Azotobacter, Bio Green, MyKo Vam, Vam Root Inoculant, and Bio N, when compared with the untreated control. Treatments were laid-out in a Randomized Complete Block Design, each replicated three times. Results showed that plant height and root length did not significantly vary among plants fertilized with Azotobacter, Bio Green, MykoVam, and Vam Root but significantly differ from those applied with Bio N and untreated-control. Plants in all biofertilizers had comparable shoot dry matter weight but were significantly better from the untreated control. Significantly highest root dry weight was registered by the Azotobacter-fertilized beauty leaf. Final leaf count, shoot base diameter, fresh shoot, and root biomass, however, did not differ significantly among all treatments. Based on the results, Azotobacter, Bio Green, MyKoVam, and Vam Root Inoculant are potential biofertilizers for Beauty leaf under a screen house condition.
