GROWTH OF 'PARVIN' MANGO IN NURSERY AS AFFECTED BY A PEPTIDE-BASED BIOSTIMULANT APPLIED TO THE SOIL

J.P. Morales-Payan
Research was conducted in the nursery to determine the effects of a biostimulant based on low weight peptides on grafted ‘Parvin’ mango for transplant production. The biostimulant treatments evaluated were 0 (check), 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 ml of biostimulant per liter of water, applied as soil drench at 150 ml per plant per application, eight times at two-week intervals. By 98 days after the first application, biostimulant treatments did not affect scion stem diameter. In contrast, mango scion length and leaf chlorophyll concentration in responded to biostimulant rates in a quadratic fashion, reaching maximum values at rate of 3 ml of biostimulant per liter. These results indicate that peptide-based biostimulants may be useful to accelerate grafted ‘Parvin’ mango for transplant production in the nursery.
