Abstract

A study on the effect of different levels of MycoGold™ on the growth and yield of eggplants was conducted from June to November 2015 at the Faculty of Sustainable Agriculture (FSA), Universiti Malaysia Sabah. This study observed the difference of growth and yield of eggplant supplied with different amounts of MycoGold™. The treabnents involved in this study include control, NPK (12:12:17), NPK3M (NPK Blue + 300g MycoGold™), NPK4M (NPK Blue + 400g MycoGold™), and NPK5M (NPK Blue + 500g MycoGold™). The experimental design used was Completely Randomized Design (CRD). The parameters that were measured for this study include plant height, stem diameter, flowering time, fruit girth, fruit length, fruit dry weight, fruit fresh weight, and number of fruits per plant. Plant height and stem diameter data were collected once in two weeks after transplant. Flowering time was collected when all structures of flower was developed. Fruits were collected a total of four times and their parameters were recorded. Collected data was analysed using one-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) with SAS version 9.4 and each treatment has no significant effect on all measurable variables. It was found that colonization of mycorrhizae on eggplant roots were low in soil phosphorus level of 339.1 mg kg-1.
