IMPROVEMENT QUALITY OF AUBERGINE PLANTS WITH EFFECTIVE MICROORGANISMS

The aim of the study was to investigate how effective microorganisms (EM) affect the quality and growth of aubergine plants. An experiment was carried out with 2 treatments: 1. soil inoculated with EM microorganisms; 2. soil without EM microorganisms (control). Plants treated with the microorganisms Em were significantly higher and showed a larger stem diameter. … Continua a leggere IMPROVEMENT QUALITY OF AUBERGINE PLANTS WITH EFFECTIVE MICROORGANISMS

EARTHWORM HUMUS FOR THE GROWTH OF VEGETABLE PLANTS

In the 20th century, the arrival of intensive agriculture brought about the phenomenon of soil impoverishment. Chemical fertilization methods, the study of applied genetics, the mechanization of agriculture and the development of phytosanitary techniques have all increased agricultural production. Earthworm humus constitutes an authentic biological fertilizer in terms of organicmaterial and microbial population. The trials … Continua a leggere EARTHWORM HUMUS FOR THE GROWTH OF VEGETABLE PLANTS
