The influence of the root-space-volume on the growth of lettuce plants


, : The influence of the root-space-volume on the growth of lettuce plants. Acta Horticulturae (39): 161-166

Lettuce seedlings were grown in solution culture in containers with diameters of 2.2-11.9 cm and 25 cm in height, giving root volumes of 95-2780 cm3.
