The effect of inorganic fertilizers on the natural beds ofUlva lactuca L.

  • A. Tewari


A possible method for fertilization of naturally growingUlva lactuca beds is described. The maximum dry weight was obtained by the treatment with dibasic sodium phosphate. The application of ammonium chloride resulted maximum crude protein in the plants.
