Abstract
Soil degradation is a global problem caused by multifaceted natural and anthropogenic activities like agricultural intensification and desertification which often resulted in a long term decrease in the ability of soil to produce food. It affects roughly 52% of agricultural land around the world depleting soil organic matter and essential plant nutrients. Plant-derived extracts from seaweeds are gaining global attention as an option to reduce the use of synthetic fertilizers. The study explored the efficacy of radiation-modified kappa-carrageenan (RMKC) derived from red seaweed (Kappaphycus alvarezii) in corn. Growth and yield parameters like stand count, plant height, ear length, number of kernels, and yield per hectare were measured to see the effects of RMKC supplementation [0, 2 liters per hectare (L/ha), 3 L/ha, and 4 L/ha] supplemented at 14 days after sowing (DAS), 32 DAS and 48 DAS. Supplementation of 4 L/ha RMKC resulted in a significant increase in yield by up to 46% compared to farmerís practice. In terms of ear length, those plants supplemented with 3 L/ha and 4 L/ha of RMKC were longer. Stand count was higher with those supplemented with RMKC. Comparable results in terms of plant height and number of kernels were obtained however. The addition of 4 L / ha RMKC could yield up to 83 per cent additional income. Further research is encouraged to assess the long-term impact of supplementation with RMKC and to determine the optimum level which is the most viable in maize production.

Key words: Corn Production, Radiation-Modified Kappa-Carrageenan (RMKC), Supplementation
