Quality of Amaranthus (Amaranthus hypochondriacus L.) and soil properties influenced by irrigation scheduling based on critical growth stages and levels of iron

Author(s): KN Rana, GJ Patel, CK Desai and MP Akbari
Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted to study the influence of Irrigation Scheduling based on critical growth stages and Fe levels on the quality of Amaranthus (Amaranthus hypochondriacus L.) during rabi season of the year 2012-13 at Tribal Research Cum Training Centre Farm, Anand Agricultural University, Devgadhbaria, Dist.-Dahod. Sixteen treatment combinations comprising of four irrigations (I1:- irrigation at branching stage, I2:-branching + Flowering stage, I3:-branching + Flowering + Grain formation stage and I4:- 0.8 IW: CPE) and four levels of iron (F0:- 0 kg ha-1, F1:-10 kg ha-1, F2:- 0.5 % FeSO4 and F3:- 5 kg ha-1 + 0.5 % FeSO4) were tried under split plot design with four replications. Irrigation scheduling did not significant influence on soil pH, EC, Organic Carbon, available P2O5, available K2O, available Fe and protein content, Fe content in grain. 0.8 IW: CPE recorded significantly higher Fe uptake which was remained at par with irrigation at branching + Flowering + Grain formation stage. Water use efficiency higher by irrigation at branching stage which was remained at par with irrigation at branching + Flowering stage and branching + Flowering + Grain formation stage. Iron levels had not significant differences in soil pH, EC, Organic Carbon, available P2O5, available K2O, available Fe, Fe content in grain, Fe uptake by grain, protein content.
