Research and results with horticultural crops grown in rockwool and nutrient film


, : Research and results with horticultural crops grown in rockwool and nutrient film. Acta Horticulturae (82): 141-147

Cucumber and tomato production costs on rockwool were higher than on soil, but the final yield figures were 10-15% higher on rockwool. Growing tomatoes in rockwool blocks in nutrient film was unsuccessful.
