Yield, Pest and Disease Reactions of Spathiphyllum (Spathiphyllum cochearispathum L.) with Organic Fertilizer Application
Abstract - The nature of the study is an experimental research evaluating the yield, pest and disease reactions of Spathiphyllum cochearispathum L. grown in BISU Bilar, Bohol. It tested 13 treatments applied to spathiphyllum using the Randomized Complete Block
Design (RCBD) with four replicates. The research aimed to assess the nutrient management of spathipyllum that could booster yield in terms of flower and sucker production. The experiment found out that the application of either 250.00 g Vermicompost+FFJ @ 2 tbsp/1 H, O or 250.00 g Vermicompost+FPJ @ 2 tbsp/1 H, O gave higher better flower production in Spathiphyllum. Likewise, 250.00 g Vermicompost+FFJ @2tbsp/l H, O also encouraged its suckering ability aptrt from the 250.00 g Vermicompost+IMO @ 2 tbsp/1 H, O combination. The 250.00 g Vermicompost+FFJ @ 2 tbspl/1 H, O, 187.509 Vermi-compost + FFJ @ 2 tbs/2 H, O,
250.00 g Vermicompost+FFJ @ 2 tbsp/1 H, O and 187.509 Vermi-compost + FPJ @ 2 tbs/1 H, O combinations have both reduced the damaged of leaf-feeding insects infesting Spathiphyllum. But, none among the treatments reduced the incidence of bacterial blight disease infection to the crop. The results imply that the application of 250 grams Vermicompost + Fermented Fruit Juice at 2 tbsp/1 water was the best as it gave the highest yield in terms of flowers and suckers apart from reducing the damage of leaf feeding insects.
