Cucumber experiments on mineral wool: sizes of mats and irrigation frequencies


Acta Horticulturae (82): 59-66
Cucumber experiments on mineral wool: sizes of mats and irrigation frequencies
Rockwool mats from 2 sources and of 3 sizes were compared for growing cucumbers in rockwool blocks. There was no difference in yield attributable to the rockwool mat source. After a cropping period of 23 weeks yields were slightly lower from plants grown on a 30 cm long X 10 cm thick mat compared with those on 30 X 7.5 and 45 X 7.5 cm mats. In a further trial mats of 30 X 5, 30 X 7.5 and 30 X 10 cm were compared. Yields were slightly lower with the thinnest mat (30 X 5).
