Effects of root medium and watering on transpiration, growth and development of glasshouse crops. I. Effects of compression at varying water levels on physical state of root media and on transpiration and growth of tomatoes



Plant and Soil 40(1): 65-81



nder moderate pressures, an application of soil clay decreased the ratio of large pores to small pores in a peat substrate. The reduction in large pores was greater with an admixture comprising montmorillonite than with soil clay. An increase in soil clay content from 50 to 70% had no significant effect on the amount of large pores. At a pressure of 1000 g cm-2 the decrease in large pores was more marked in pure peat than in peat/soil clay mixtures.
