Effect of solution conductivity on growth and yield of Origanum dictamnus L. in nutrient film culture



Effect of solution conductivity on growth and yield of Origanum dictamnus L. in nutrient film culture



Acta Horticulturae ( 306): 204-209



Plants were grown in NFT in an unheated greenhouse. The nutrient solution was maintained at pH 6 and the EC level was varied (2.0, 3.0 or 4.0 mS). Shoot FW and DW, water uptake, and essential oil contents of the leaves or bracts were greatest at 2.0 mS and decreased as EC increased while root DW was greatest at an EC value of 4.0 mS.
