Abstract:

Field experiment was conducted for the evaluation of potentiality in sea plant extracts got from Kappaphycus sp. in boosting the growth, leaf quality and yield of mulberry leaves. Foliar sprays of different concentrations of sea plant extract were sprayed on the mulberry plants at different intervals of time. It was found that foliar application of sea plant extract from LBS 13 at 1.5 ml/l at 45th day after pruning enhanced the leaf yield per plant by 308.81 g/pl, average plant height by 150.42 cm, number of shoots present (14.32) and leaves per plant (400 leaves per plant) along with chlorophyll content when compared to control. Results of the present study indicate that application of seaweed extract significantly increases both quality and quantity of mulberry leaves.
