The response of the heated glasshouse lettuce crop to in situ supplements of low illuminance fluorescent light

, : The response of the heated glasshouse lettuce crop to in situ supplements of low illuminance fluorescent light. Acta Horticulturae (51): 185-200

Comparisons were made between light applications begun at different times of the day and night but given for the same period of time. The supplements were provided for the greater part of the growth period of the crop. The response was measured in terms of changes in dry matter, leaf area, stem length and time to head formation.

A 4-year experiment on summer and autumn planted crops of various chrysanthemum cvs showed that equal amounts of N and K2O in any factorial combinations between 110-330 kg/ha had no effect, in most cases, on the number of blooms/m2, bloom diameter...
