PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF NITROGEN, PHOSPHORUS AND POTASSIUM ON BLUEBERRY 'BLUECROP'

Xiaoyan Li, Jienan Wei , Yadong Li
Physiological effects of fertilizer on blueberry were studied in this experiment, including effect on soil pH, plant growth, physiological leaf index and weight of 100 fruits. The treatment were four levels of each of nitrogen (N) (14, 28, 42, 56 g plant-1), phosphorus (P) (7, 14, 21, 28 g plant-1) and potassium (K) (7, 14, 21, 28 g plant-1). The result showed that increased fertilizer application resulted in higher pH value of soil, leaf dry weight and plant growth remarkably, but the effect on chlorophyll content and net photosynthetic rate was only small, and there was no clear effect on fruit weight. Generally, the second treatment levels proved to be the best one.
