Maximizing growth of vegetable seedlings in controlled environments at elevated temperature, light and CO2


, : Maximizing growth of vegetable seedlings in controlled environments at elevated temperature, light and CO2. Acta Horticulturae (39): 89-102

Cucumber, tomato and lettuce seedlings were grown in the greenhouse for 5, 8 and 11 days, respectively, and then grown in growth chambers with high temperature regime (30/24 deg C), light intensity (43.1 klx) and CO2 enrichment (2000 p.p.m.), a 16-h photoperiod, and fertilized 4 times daily. After 15 days plant weight was 2-4.6 times as much as those grown in the growth chamber under standard conditions (24-18 deg , 21.5 klx and 400 p.p.m.

In wind tunnel experiments the sensitivity of timothy cv. Aberystwyth 548 to 0.11-0.12 p.p.m. SO2 was increased by reduced light intensity and temp. as the growth rate was decreased. Root dry wt. was consistently reduced by SO2 in all the environm...

Tea crabapple plants (Malus hupehensis) were grown for 10, 20 or 30 days from seed in growth chambers at 2 CO2 levels (400 or 2, 000 p.p.m.) and 2 light levels (2, 000 or 4, 000 ft.-c.). Enriching the CO2 content was much more effective than doubl...

The sensitivity of timothy grass P. pratense L. to SO2 was affected by 2 factors which influenced the rate of growth; light and temperature. When either lower temperatures or smaller photon flux densities were employed to reduce the rate of growth...
