The growth of camellia in peanut shelles compost media in different concentrations of potassium

Abstract: Agricultural wastes management is a step toward sustainable agriculture. Peanut shelles as remained wastes of cultivating peanut has considerable volume which its compost can be used as available sources of ornamental plants medium. A factorial experiment based on randomized completely blocks design was conducted to investigate the impact of peanut shelles compost as the growth medium of Camellia in different concentrations of potassium. Fifteen treatments, every treatment at three replicates and 45 plots were used for experiment. The rooted cuttings of Camellia were planted and periodic watering with Hoagland solution was performed two times per week. After five months, the plants growth indices and the concentration and uptake nutrients were measured. Results showed that peanut shelles compost increased growth indices than in the control. In the most growth indices, the plant indicated a better response to 40% (w/w) compost and finally 60%. The results are indicator of providing the needed potassium for plant by peanut shelles compost than in the control.
