Synthetic Chemical Nutrient Application and Seaweed Extract Supplement on Zea mays under MSU-Buug Soil and Climatic Conditions
AbstractThis study was conducted to determine the yield performance of sweet corn applied with synthetic chemical nutrients and supplemented with different levels of seaweed extract under the prevailing soil and climatic conditions in Buug, Zamboanga Sibugay. The experimental area was laid out using Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with four treatments and four replications. An area of 168m2 excluding alley ways and canals was utilized in this study. Based on the findings of the study, there was no significant difference among the average length, average weight and total weight of sweetcorn ears per plot per treatment. However, the average circumference and the total number of sweetcorn ears per plot per treatment showed significant differences being applied with inorganic fertilizer and supplemented with different rates of seaweed extract. Hence, adoption of T4 is recommended to obtain bigger circumference and more number of sweetcorn ears is further recommended.
