Influence of foliar application on safflower yield


Mohammad Lakzayi

One of the most important issues about increase of crop yield and improving the quality of agricultural products is balanced plant nutrition. Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) is an important oilseed crop of the family Asteraceae originated in southern Asia and is known to have been cultivated in China, India, Egypt and Iran. One of the most important issues about increase of crop yield and improving the quality of agricultural products is balanced plant nutrition. Foliar application of nutrients has become an efficient way to increase yield and quality of crops. Given the above mentioned points, it seems that zinc foliar application can reduce the effects of water stress and supply essential plant needs because research has shown that zinc increases crop yield, promotes the quality of produce and consequently promotes the enrichment and improvement in the health of a plant community. Great efforts have been directed to improve pea production and quality for the purpose of increasing exported yield. Application of adequate amounts of microelements is one of the most important factors involved in improving plant growth, yield and quality of pea. The nutrition of plants by foliar application is not only an addition channel of nutrients but also a mean of regulating root absorption by such plants.
