Abstract

 

This study investigated the advantages of microbial fertilizer to chemical fertilizers (N and P) on watermelon in Çukurova Region in Turkey. The experimental design was randomized block with four replications. There were five different methods: zero doze control application, traditional fertilizing application (160 kg/ha (N), 80 kg/ha (P2O5). The other application were done with three different forms of microbial fertilizer; 3000 cc/ha Microbial fertilizer + 50 kg/ha sugar beet molasses, 3000 cc/ha Microbial fertilizer + 50 kg/ha sugar beet molasses + high fertilizer 1500 cc/ha Microbial fertilizer + 20 kg/ha sugar beet molasses and 3000 cc/ha Microbial fertilizer + % 25 traditional fertilizing application. The highest yield was 36388.9 kgha-1 in 3000 cc/ha Microbial fertilizer + 50 kgha-1 sugar beet molasses application and the least yield was determined as 31388,9 kgha-1 in traditional fertilizer (160 kgha-1 (N) + 80 kg ha-1 P2O5) application. The yield was 35972,2 kgha-1 in 3000 cc/ha Microbial fertilizer + 50 kg/ha sugar beet molasses + high fertilizer 1500 cc/ha Microbial fertilizer + 20 kg/ha sugar beet molasses. Also yield was 34861,1 kgha-1 in 3000 cc/ha Microbial fertilizer + % 25 traditional fertilizing application. There was no significant difference between chemical fertilizer application and microbial fertilizer application. Also in plants treated with microbial fertilizers, fusarium diseases were also less observed than chemical fertilizers parcels. According to these results, it is advisable to use microbial fertilizer which does not pollute the environment.

Key words: Watermelon, microbial fertilizer, chemical fertilizer, yields.
