Abstract:
The effects of irrigation frequency, N concentration, and NH 4-N/NO3-N ratio on rhizosphere NH4 concentrations and plant yield were investigated for bell pepper (Capsicum annuum L., cv. 'Mazurka') grown in perlite. The experiment comprised eight treatments, with two concentrations of N (120 or 60 mg l-1), two NH4-N/NO3-N ratios (3:7 and 1:9), and two irrigation frequencies (3 d-1, or for 1.5 min every 30 min throughout the day). The combination of high NH4 concentration in the irrigation water and high irrigation frequency reduced yield significantly. Decreasing the NH 4 concentration by decreasing the NH4-NTNO3-N ratio, or by decreasing the total N concentration, improved yield. The impaired growth of plants exposed to high irrigation frequency and high NH4 concentrations was a result of high transient NH4 concentrations in the rhizosphere. Time-dependent processes, such as nitrification, reduced transient NH4 concentrations in the rhizosphere and, therefore, actual NH4 concentrations were lower under low-frequency irrigation. Modification of the NH4/NO3 ratio under high frequencies of irrigation is recommended to diminish the risks of NH4 toxicity in sensitive crops.
