Aspersión foliar, Cultivar Parris, macro y micronutrimentos


El uso de extractos vegetales como bioestimulantes, es una alternativa en la producción agrícola. El objetivo de esta investigación fue evaluar la aspersión foliar de extractos acuosos de nopal (Opuntia ficus-indica) y cilantro (Coriandrum sativum), en el crecimiento y concentración nutrimental de hojas de lechuga. Plántulas de 30 d de edad, se asperjaron con los tratamientos durante 28 días, en intervalos de siete días. La aspersión de los extractos no modificó la altura de planta, ni el número de hojas. El extracto de nopal incrementó la concentración de P, Fe y Zn; mientras que el extracto de cilantro, aumentó la concentración de N, P, Mg, Fe, Cu, Mn, B y Zn. Los extractos vegetales evaluados no tienen influencia en el crecimiento, pero sí en la concentración de nutrimentos en hojas de lechuga.
