Article: Evaluation of Growth Parameters on Carpobrotus edulis, Kalanchoe daigremontiana and Kalanchoe tubiflora in Relation to Different Seaweed Liquid Fertilizer (SLF) as a Biostimulant

Authors: Damiano Spagnuolo and Domenico Prisa

The aim of this research was to evaluate the biofertilization capacity of five different species of algae, representative of the three main groups of macroalgae selected from Lake Ganzirri in Messina, Venice Lagoon and Norwegian coasts. The experiments, started in January 2021, were conducted in the greenhouses of CREA-OF in Pescia (Pt), Tuscany, Italy (43°54′N 10°41′E) on Carpobrotus edulis, Kalanchoe daigremontiana and Kalanchoe tubiflora from seed. The test showed a significant increase in the agronomic parameters analysed in plants treated with algae extracts on succulents cultivated. The test also showed increased control of the pathogen Pythium debaryanum in seedlings where the algae extracts were introduced and also an increase in the percentage of seed germination and a reduction in the average germination time. This research work has shown that algal species have great potential for use in the development of biofertilisers in sustainable agriculture in terms of cost-effectiveness, ecological role, possible reduction of synthetic fertilisers and plant protection products, increased soil fertility and
microbiological diversity.
