Effect of soil compaction on growth, yield and root rots of white beans in clay loam and sandy loam soil



Effect of soil compaction on growth, yield and root rots of white beans in clay loam and sandy loam soil



Soil biology and biochemistry3(3): 233-238



The effect of soil compaction on plant growth, yield and root rot severity of white beans was investigated in sandy loam (Harrow) and clay loam (Chatham) soils between 1983 and 1985. The root rots were mainly Rhizoctonia solani (Rs) and F. solani f. sp. phaseoli (Fs). The ratios of Rs to Fs in infected root pieces were 10:6 and 10:4 in Harrow and Chatham locations, respectively. There were significant reductions in root and shoot biomass and yield, and an increase in root rot severity as soil compaction increased. At the same degree of soil compaction, plants grew better and yielded more in clay loam than in sandy loam. The relationships between soil compaction and other soil environmental factors such as water, aeration and temperature are discussed.
