The effects of irrigation frequency and cultivars on premature cracking and blossom-end rot of watermelon fruits grown in the Sudan

The effects of irrigation frequency and cultivars on premature cracking and blossom-end rot of watermelon fruits grown in the Sudan

Two years' results from split-plot experiments in the Sudan showed that the cvs Tom Watson, Pasteque Early Mexican, Chilean Black, Florida Favourite and a local Balodi showed less premature cracking than the 5 others tested. Cracking was more severe at Hudeiba in 1969 than at Shambat in 1970, where watering every 6 days and a no-watering treatment gave less premature cracking than watering every 12 days.

Premature cracking was related to varietal characteristics. It is suggested that round fruits are more resistant to blossom-end rot than elongate ones.

All 6 cvs studied and especially Chico and Red Top yielded well at Shambat and Karima (Sudan). Plant population had no significant effect on total yield at Shambat, but a high population (21 000/feddan = 0.42 ha) at Karima significantly outyielded...

Furrow irrigation schedules at 5-, 10-, 15-, 20- or 25-day intervals and a non-irrigated control were compared. The cv. Sugar Baby was resistant to blossom-end rot under all regimes. Cvs Garrisonian and Charleston Gray were highly susceptible with...

Data are tabulated on percentage of fruits with BER and percentage of fruit cracking for 4 elongated and 4 round varieties grown at Wad Medani in 1987. The round, local varieties HSD0177 and HSD0319 had low incidences of BER and cracking, but they...

Ozone sensitivity was assessed by recording the extent of visible injury, ch...
