Title : IMPACT OF DIFFERENT ORGANIC FERTILIZERS ON LAVENDER PRODUCTIVITY (Lavandula officinalis Chaix)
Abstract : The impact of four organic fertilizers (Chap liquid, Guano, Slavol and Vermicompost) on the productivity of lavender was carried out at the organic lavender plantation "Sunny Valley" in Danilovgrad during 2019. Non-fertilized control variant was included in the experiment. The efficiency of the nutrition systems applied is monitored through the most important productivity parameters of lavender: plant height, number of flower shoots and herb yield. The highest average height of the lavender plant was measured on variants using Slavol (59.5 cm), Shap liquid (58.8 cm) and Vermicompost (58.0 cm), while the lowest plants were measured on the control variant (49.8 cm). All fertilizer variants applied had a significant effect on increasing the height of the lavender plant. The largest number of flower shoots was measured in variants fertilized with Vermicompost - 444.5 and Slavol - 405.8, while the smallest number was determined on the control variant - 292. Differences in the number of flower shoots between all studied organic fertilizers and controls were statistically justified. All fertilizer variants resulted in a significant increase in the herb yield of lavender. The highest yield of the herb was achieved by applying the organic fertilizer Slavol - 337.3 g. This variant showed a significant increase in herb weight compared to the control - 225.3 g, but also to the variant fertilized with Chap liquid - 284.8 g.
