Studies on a cultivation system using capillary irrigation in shallow organic substrates

, : Studies on a cultivation system using capillary irrigation in shallow organic substrates. Acta Horticulturae (82): 171-178

A table-top planter for the disabled required an organic compost 5 cm deep capable of supporting many crops, and a mixture of 2 parts peat:1 part pine bark was found suitable. The most suitable sub-irrigation and drainage systems tested are discussed, together with the possible use of the planter for research into substrate/crop behaviour.
