Effect of soil ESP on the growth and chemical composition of drumstick (Moringa oleifera, Lamk)

Effect of soil ESP on the growth and chemical composition of drumstick (Moringa oleifera, Lamk)

South Indian Horticulture 41(2): 84-90

M. oleifera (a medicinal plant also widely grown for its edible pods) seedlings were grown in naturally sodic (exchangeable sodium percentage (ESP) 41.0) or artificially sodic (ESP 12-60) soils in pots for 12 months. Significant decreases in plant height, number of leaves, stem diameter, plant spread, total leaf area and root length occurred at ESP >=41. Root diameter and total root number were ~3 and 5 times higher, respectively, in control soil (ESP 3.82) than in the sodic soils.
