Cultivation of vegetables in substrates on plastic sheeting

Cultivation of vegetables in substrates on plastic sheeting

Gemuse Munchen 25(9): 406-407

Cultivation of tomatoes and cucumbers in soilless compost wrapped in polythene sheeting is recommended as a method of conserving water and reducing nitrate concentrations in the soil under glasshouses. Cucumber plants required 15 litres of substrate each, and tomato plants 7.4 litres. Water and nutrients (1.0% and 0.5% Flory 2 for cucumbers and tomatoes, respectively) were supplied by drip irrigation. The compost could be used more than once.
