The effect of irrigation water temperature on the germination and growth of plants






Acta Horticulturae (79): 145-152

The effect of irrigation water temperature on the germination and growth of plants

Seeds of Phaseolus vulgaris, tomato, lettuce, cabbage and the everlasting daisy Acrolineum sp. sown in punnets were irrigated with water at different temperatures (5 deg , 10 deg , 15 deg , 20 deg , 25 deg , 30 deg C) or (5 deg , 15 deg and 30 deg ). The day/night temperature regime was 25 deg /17 deg or 25 deg /20 deg. Maximum depression of substrate and leaf temperature caused by the irrigation water temperature (IWI) was about 13 deg.
