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


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