Abstract

ABSTRACT: This study determined the effect of vermicompost humates as salinity mitigator in germination and morphometric characteristics of basil varieties seedlings, tolerant and sensitive to salinity, subjected to vermicompost humates diluted 1/60 (v/v) and 0, 50 and 100 mM NaCl in a completely randomized design with four replications. The rate and percentage of germination, root length, shoot height, root and shoot fresh and dry-weight were measured. The varieties showed differential response, highlighting Napoletano as the most tolerant. Vermicompost humates showed biostimulant effects on variables evaluated, allowing that tolerant variety to improve germination and growth, and increasing the salinity tolerance of the sensitive variety.RESUMO: O objetivo foi determinar o efeito de humatas de vermicomposto como mitigador de salinidade na germinação e morfometria de mudas de variedades de manjericão, tolerantes e sensíveis à salinidade, submetidas a 0, 50 e 100 mM de NaCl e humatas de vermicomposto diluído 1/60 (v / v) em delineamento inteiramente casualizado com quatro repetições. Foram medidos a taxa e porcentagem de germinação, comprimento da radícula, altura da muda, comprimento da raiz, altura da parte aérea, raiz e biomassa fresca e seca da parte aérea. As variedades apresentaram resposta diferenciada, destacando-se o Napoletano como a mais tolerante. Humatos de vermicomposto mostraram efeitos bioestimulantes nas variáveis avaliadas, permitindo que a variedade tolerante melhorasse a germinação e o crescimento aumentando a tolerância à salinidade da variedade sensível.
