Abstract: The effect of seaweed liquid fertilizer from the red seaweed Hypnea musciformis, on the micromorphology of Vigna mungo was studied. H. musciformis was collected from Kanyakumari (Lat.9o11’N,’Long.79o24’E) rocky coast for the present study. Different concentration (1%, 2%, 4%, 6% and 8%) of H. musciformis liquid fertilizer and for the control experiment distilled water was used. Maximum germination percentage, growth and yield parameters, pigments, number of branches, root nodules and biochemical constituents were observed at 2% concentration of SLF. Present study revealed that the seaweed H. musciformis can be used as potential fertilizer and serve as a cost effective ecofriendliness for sustainable agriculture and environment.
