"Applying seaweed extract increases flower production of gerberas"

The experiment was carried out under the shade net house conditions in a private farm located in Al-Diwaniyah city, Al-Qadisiyah, Iraq, to investigate the influence of applying different rates of seaweed extract (0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, and 3.0 g/L) on different plant growth parameters and flowers production of gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii L.).

Results showed that there were statistical differences in the levels of seaweed extract that applied as a source of organic fertilizer, and also that applying seaweed fertilizer has increased the agronomic traits and number of flowers produced per plant.

It can be concluded that applying seaweed fertilizer at 3.0 (g/L) had a beneficial influence on the growth and flowering production of gerbera plants grown under shade net house conditions.
