The effect of mulching cucumbers in unheated polyethylene houses



The effect of mulching cucumbers in unheated polyethylene houses



Lietuvos Zemdirbystes Mokslinio Tyrimo Instituto Darbai 21: 125-129



Cucumber seedlings, Hybrid TSKhA-1, were planted in single or double rows in polyethylene houses on 10-12 May and the soil was immediately mulched with 60-80 mu polyethylene or left uncovered (control). At the start of the growing season the mulched soil was 1.5-6.0 deg C warmer than the unmulched, but later, when direct insolation of the soil was reduced by cucumber leaves, the differences were reduced to 0.5-3.0 deg.
