Abstract:
Rice is an important food crop cultivated all over the world. India occupies first and second position in area and production respectively. This study aimed at revealing the role of red seaweed (Kappaphycus alvarezii) bioformulations (LBS-6 and LBD-1) in increasing the chlorophyll content of rice. Results have shown that seaweed bioformulations improves the efficiency when used in combination with fungicides. physiological parameter like chlorophyll content was elevated in leaves which were sprayed with LBS6 (38.50 SPAD value) which was T10 (carbendazim 50 %WP @ 0.6 g + LBS6 @ 1ml/lit).
