Greenhouse tomato cultivation in Polish mineral wool as compared with growth on peat substrate

Greenhouse tomato cultivation in Polish mineral wool as compared with growth on peat substrate

Annals of Warsaw Agricultural University ( 16): 25-32

In 2-season trials, the cultivars Creon, Counter and Vivia were grown in a greenhouse on the Polish rockwool Flormin or in a peat/bark substrate in 10-cm pots. The trial lasted from 21 Feb. to 22 June. The nutritional schedules for both trials are outlined. The substrates were fresh in the first season and were re-used untreated for the second season. In all cultivars in both seasons the early and total yields were markedly higher on rockwool.
