Effects of Nano-Iron Oxide Particles on Agronomic Traits of Soybean
Keywords:nano-iron oxide, soybean, pod dry weight
This study was performed to determine the effect of nano-iron oxide on soybean yield and quality. Field experiment was designed based on randomized complete block design with three replications. Treatments were five levels of nano-iron oxide (0, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 1 g l-1). Results showed that nano-iron oxide at the concentration of 0.75 g l-1 was increased leaf + pod dry weight and pod dry weight. The highest grain yield was observed with using 0.5 g l-1 nano-iron oxide that showed 48% increase in grain yield in comparison with control. Other measured traits were not affected by the iron nano-particles.
