Growth, Productivity and Biomass Quality of Kenaf Irrigated with Wastewaters - The Effect of Ammonium Ion

A.L. Fernando, B. Barbosa, S. Boléo & B. Mendes
The aim of this work was to evaluate growth responses, as well as the quality and biomass productivity of the G4 variety of kenaf, irrigated with wastewaters presenting different ammonium ion concentrations: 0, 15, 30 and 60 mg/L (NH4). Throughout the experiment, in pots, percolated waters were analyzed in terms of ammonium ion. Results show that the concentration of 15 mg/L of NH4 led to the highest yields in the G4 variety, with low ash...
