Peat and mineral wool as substrates for cultivation of melon

Peat and mineral wool as substrates for cultivation of melon

Acta Horticulturae (82): 165-169

Melons, Aroma, were grown on greenhouse benches in peat or on mineral wool mats, with a standard nutrient solution being given by drip irrigation. In the first experimental year, peat gave 42% higher yields of better quality fruit than mineral wool.
