En el presente trabajo se utilizó extracto de Ulva lactuca a diferentes concentraciones como tratamiento de imbibición de semillas de frijol mungo y se evaluó su efecto del en los parámetros de crecimiento de las plántulas. Los efectos positivos se observaron en la longitud de la radícula de plántulas tratadas con UL2 al 0.2 % y UL6 al 1.0 %. El valor más alto de peso seco se registró a partir de semillas empapadas con UL8 al 0.2 %. Los extractos ácidos de algas marinas mostraron mejores resultados en los parámetros bioquímicos como la clorofila, lo que resultó en un aumento de clorofila a y b en las plantas tratada con UL4, UL8 y UL10 en 0.2 %. También los carbohidratos totales y el azucares reducidos se incrementaron con los tratamientos de UL2 al 1.0 % y UL10 al 0.2 % respectivamente en las plántulas de frijol mungo. Los compuestos activos contenidos en el extracto líquido de algas marinas estimularon el crecimiento de las plántulas y podrían usarse como un método de imbibición para semillas, que es potencialmente capaz de promover una germinación más rápida de las semillas y un crecimiento de las plantas más uniformes.
