The influence of greenhouse climatic conditions, mainly temperature, on musk melon production


, : The influence of greenhouse climatic conditions, mainly temperature, on musk melon production. Acta Horticulturae (42): 239-253

The influence of temperature on fruit production (earliness, yield and fruit size) in the cvs Doublon and Vedrantais was studied. Temperatures were similar by day but differences were introduced in the night temperatures. Warmer treatments (minimum 19 deg C) while raising young plants were more favourable to growth than cooler treatments (minimum 16 deg ) and gave subsequent earlier flowering and harvests.

The rate of N uptake by melon plants grown in hydroponic culture (2 systems) rose gradually before pollination, increased rapidly after pollination, remained high for about 15 days and then suddenly fell to pre-pollination levels. Water uptake ros...

Effects of restricted nutrient supply after pollination on the growth and fruit quality of musk melon. Restriction of the nutrient supply in water culture did not affect the increase in plant height but greatly retarded the increase in dry weight of the upper leaves.
