Abstract


To economically evaluate production in terms of quality and quantity in newly reclaimed area of desert under drip irrigation system an investigation was conducted for two consecutive seasons in a vineyard to scrutinize the effects of natural zeolite loaded nitrogen, biochar, biofertilizers, nano rice husk with and without nitrogen and organic fertilizer as well as combination of them in comparison to vines fertilized with chemical recommended dose of NPK as control on growth, and chemical components of Superior seedless grapevine cultivar (Vitis vinifera L). The outcome data revealed that, mixed between natural zeolite loaded nitrogen, biochar, biofertilizers (Bacillus megaterium and Azotobacter chroococcum), rice husk loaded nitrogen and compost in one mixed treatment led to significant increase in vegetative growth as well as chemical ingredients. Moreover, mixed treatment markedly improved soil chemical and physical properties. Present results confirmed that, mixture of zeolite loaded nitrogen, biochar, biofertilizers, nano rice husk loaded nitrogen and organic fertilizers could supply grape with all essential and beneficial nutrients to achieve high yield with desired market criteria alongside reducing economic costs which reflected from evaluation of investment factor and decline pollution of our ecosystem.
