به‌منظور بررسی اثر زئولیت بر ویژگی های کمی و کیفی گیاه دارویی کارلا تحت تیمارهای کم‌آبیاری، آزمایشی به­صورت فاکتوریل در قالب طرح کاملاً تصادفی با سه تکرار در گلخانه پژوهشکده کشاورزی دانشگاه زابل در سال ۱۳97- 1396 اجرا شد. فاکتورهای آزمایش شامل تنش کم‌آبی در سه سطح (90، 70 و 50 درصد ظرفیت زراعی) و زئولیت در چهار سطح (صفر، 20، 30 و 40 گرم در هر کیلوگرم خاک گلدان) اعمال گردید. نتایج نشان داد کاربرد زئولیت سبب افزایش وزن تر و خشک میوه، قطر میوه و تعداد میوه در بوته شد و کم‌آبیاری اثر کاهشی بر صفات ذکرشده داشت. کاربرد زئولیت در تمامی سطوح کم‌آبیاری سبب افزایش طول بوته، طول میوه، عملکرد میوه، کلروفیل a، b و کارتنویید، ویتامین C و آلکالویید گردید، به‌طوری­که بیشترین مقدار این صفات در تیمار 40 گرم زئولیت در کیلوگرم خاک حاصل شدند. با توجه به نتایج به‌دست‌آمده می­توان کاربرد زئولیت را درکاهش اثرات نامطلوب کم‌آبیاری بر صفات کمی و کیفی گیاه دارویی کارلا، مثبت ارزیابی کرد.

چکیده [English]

In order to study the application of zeolite on quantitative and qualitative characteristics of carela medicinal plant under deficit irrigation, a factorial experiment was conducted in a completely randomized design with three replications in a greenhouse at the Agricultural Institute, University of Zabol during 2018. Experimental factors included deficit irrigation in three levels, (90, 70 and 50 % F.C.), and four levels of zeolite (0, 20, 30 and 40 g/kg of soil). The results showed that application of zeolite increased fresh and dry fruit weight, fruit diameter and fruits number per plant and deficit irrigation had a decreasing effect on the mentioned traits. Application of zeolite at all levels of deficit irrigation increased plant length, fruit length, fruit yield, chlorophyll a, b and carotenoid, vitamin C and alkaloids, so that the highest amount of these traits was obtained from 40 g/kg zeolite. In general, application of zeolite was helpful in reducing the adverse effects of deficit irrigation on carela's quantitative and qualitative traits.
