Abstract/Contents:"Bio-fertilizers are using different types of living cells to provide soil nutrition for plant growth. The using of bio-fertilizer is one of the most important step [steps] to solute soil pollution from chemical fertilizers or pesticides using. Two Common [common] bermudagrass (Cynodon L. C. Rich) cultivars 'Sahara' and 'U-3' were choused in this research. Seeds were sown in 6" pots contained vermiculite media. The seeding rate was 10g/m20 , and maintained at 1". During the time of germination, only 1/10 Hoagland's solution were [was] added. A complete randomized design with four replications for each treatment, and five treatments, including fast-released fertilizer (N:P2O5:K2O:MgO = 15:15:15:4), slow-released fertilizer (Scotts; 34:3:3), two concentrations of bio-fertilizer, include 0.4 ml/m2, and 0.5 ml/m2 (Fong-Yuban microbe; 3.5:5.1:3.4), and control were used in this experiment. The experiment was conducted under [a] greenhouse for 10 weeks. Root and shoot dry weight [weights] were measured. Chlorophyll content was also measured by [a] chlorophyll meter (Minolta SPAD 502) at [the] first week and before [the] harvest. Statistical analyses of the study was [were] performed with Statistical Analysis System (SAS, 1987). From the results we found that the treatments of bio-fertilizer 0.5 ml/m2, slow-released fertilizer, and fast-released fertilizer were significant [significantly] better than the bio-fertilizer 0.4 ml/m2 treatments and control on their shoot dry weight and total dry weight, but not root dry weight. From the comparisons of chlorophyll measurement we found that bio-fertilizer 0.5 ml/m2 showed the best result on the present of color. These results revealed that biofertilizer had the greatest influence on the quality of bermudagrass under normal soil temperature."
