A Research on Effect of using two nutrient solutions with different NPK ratios on physical characteristics and concentration of bioactive compounds in peas (Pisum sativum) cultivated using hydroponics technology


Parth Singhal*, Vanshita Gupta and Akhilesh Dubey

Pisum sativum, or garden peas, were grown hydroponically in this study utilising two distinct media solutions with varying NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium) ratios (2:1:3 and 6:1:2). The goal of the study was to identify the media solution that would provide the plants with superior physical traits, such as more leaves and branches, as well as higher levels of phytochemicals like flavonoids and phenolic acids. The study's findings demonstrated that the NPK ratio of the media solutions did significantly affect the Pisum sativum plants' growth and phytochemical content. These substances contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capabilities, among other health advantages. This study emphasises the significance of the NPK ratio and its effects on plant development and phytochemical content in hydroponic Pisum sativum growth. The findings imply that Pisum sativum may develop and produce phytochemicals more favourably under stressful conditions such as lack of nutrients etc.
