Growth, leaf photosynthesis and seed yield of Canavalia ensiformis (L.) DC cv. Tovar and Yaracuy in Calabozo, Guarico state

Growth, leaf photosynthesis and seed yield of Canavalia ensiformis (L.) DC cv. Tovar and Yaracuy in Calabozo, Guarico state

Revista de la Facultad de Agronomia, Universidad del Zulia 16(2): 174-186

In a field trial in 1995/96 in Calabozo, Venezuela, C. ensiformis Tovar and Yaracuy were grown with or without NPK fertilizer. There was a significantly higher total dry matter accumulation and leaf area index in plots given fertilizer, but there were no significant differences in seed yield or yield components. Leaf photosynthetic rates were measured on 4 dates during the growing season, and the highest values were obtained at 43 days after sowing in plants given fertilizer.
