Abstract

Factors related to the growth of Chinese cabbage (pai-tsai) depends on the soil type and the amount of watering. The farmers have found problems with the low survival rate of Chinese cabbage (pai-tsai) in the seedling stage. Therefore, the objective of this research was to study the influence of soil type and amount of watering supply on the growth of Chinese cabbage (pai-tsai) after 28-day seedling. The experiment was conducted with planting factors which were three types of soil (loam, sand, and sandy loam) and three levels of watering (10, 20, and 30 milliliters per day). After planting, the researchers collected survival percentage, fresh weight, plant height, and root length. The results of the research showed that soil types influenced the growth of Chinese cabbage (pai-tsai). The loam was suitable for planting the Chinese cabbage (pai-tsai). Since the loam gave the highest average survival percentage (69.63%), fresh weight (0.019 grams), and root length (2.58 centimeters). This experiment also showed that there were no influence of watering and no interaction effect between soil types and watering on all results.
