Effect of Electric shock on some growth traits, yield and yield component of two varieties of maize
AbstractTo investigate the effect of electric shock on morphological variation of maiz. Seed of two varieties Fajer1 and Baghdad3 were germinated. Seeds were treated with 1% NaCl solution for 6h then transferred to container with same solution. Two polars were connected to the container and AC current 220V was switched on with 2, 4 and 6 amber for 5 minutes. Then seedling washed and planted at the field. Electric shock induced significant variations in most of studied agronomic traits. Electric shock caused decreasing plant height in most traits of M1 except Fajer1 under SH2 an increase in plant height 182.33 and183.67 cm for M1 and M2 leaf area per plant 4810.38 cm2, number of ear per plant 16.13 leaf per plant and dry weight per plant, While M2 the same variety with SH3 an increase 19% grain yield and with SH2 gave increasing in height plant, leaf area per plant and grain weight per ear 96.93g.
