Abstract

The effect of different soil media and irrigation intervals on the growth of aerial plant parts of Sophora secundiflora was investigated. Seven different media i.e., sand, silt, clay, sand + silt (1:1), sand + clay (1:1) silt + clay (1:1) and sand + silt + clay (1:1:1) were subjected to different irrigation intervals i.e., daily irrigation, alternate day irrigation and irrigation with two days interval. Among the tested media sand + silt + clay showed statistically significant effect as regards plant survival (75.67%), plant height (20.80 cm), stem weight (6.41 g) and number of leaves per plant (23.02). Maximum germination (92.22%) was observed in sand + silt. Irrigation with two days interval significantly affected plant survival (66.42%), plant height (17.53 cm), stem weight (5.42 g) and number of leaves per plant (20.12). Germination percentage was maximum (86.19%) in seeds receiving daily irrigation. It can be concluded that medium sand +silt +clay irrigated with two days interval was found to be the best among the tested media and the irrigation intervals for the growth of aerial plant parts of Sophora secundiflora.
