Influence of soilless culture system on growth and biochemistry of horse gram- Macrotyloma uniflorum (Lam.) Verdc.
N. Gowthami and R. S. Meerabai
The effect of 3 different concentrations of hydroponic nutrient solution on germination, growth and biochemical content of Macrotyloma uniflorum (Lam.) Verdc. using two types of pots- Plastic and Mud pots were studied using coir dust as potting media. The germination rate, shoot length and root length were found to be higher in plants grown in Conc. III (Plastic pots) wherein carbohydrate, protein and chlorophyll content of the plants were found to be higher in Conc. II (Plastic pots). Hence this study recommends the use of Conc. II and Conc. III for soilless culture of horse gram in Plastic pots.
