Abstract

This study was conducted during the period between 23th September 2021 to 1st July 2022, in the nursery of Duhok University, Kurdistan region, Iraq. Aiming to evaluate effect of the Shade (0 and 50) %, Gibberellic acid (0, 250, and 500) mg.l-1 and three levels of NPK fertilizer control (0, 0, 0), low (150, 100, 75), and high (300,200,150) mg.l-1 on the growth and development for Myrtle (Myrtus communis) plants. This experiment was performed by use randomized complete block design (RCBD). The best results include the following: 50% shade significantly increased the plant height (36.21) cm, leaf area (4.41) cm2, total chlorophyll (57.41) spad, vegetative dry weight (14.62) gm, plant growth index (9230) cm3 and number of premier tricussate shoots (14.37) branch/plant compared with 0%. spray with 500 mg.l-1 GA3 significantly increased plant height (35.58) cm, number of branches, leaf area (2.84) cm2, total chlorophyll (57.28) spad, dry weight (13.67) gm, plant growth index (8098) cm3, number of premier tricussate shoots (14.37) branch/plant. Also used NPK fertilizer caused significantly increase in all these traits, the best interaction treatment among the three factors include 50% shade with 500 mg.l-1 GA3 and (300,200,150) mg.l-1 NPK that gave the highest significant values for the plant height (43.53) cm, leaf area (4.53) cm2, total chlorophyll (64.57) spad, vegetative dry weight (20.27) gm, plant growth index (15580) cm3 and number of premier tricussate shoots (20.67) branch/plant compared with control (0 shade, 0 GA3, (0,0, 0) mg.l-1) .
