Preliminary evaluation of a hydroponic recirculating nutrient system for gerbera cultivation



Preliminary evaluation of a hydroponic recirculating nutrient system for gerbera cultivation



Acta Horticulturae ( 361): 414-422



In order to assess the difficulties involved in construction and management of a soilless culture system, a pilot simplified recirculating nutrient solution system for gerbera cultivation was set up and evaluated. For the trial, several new lines of gerbera were cultivated in small channels, using perlite as inert medium. Nutrient solution was distributed by drip hosepipe. Drainage water was collected in an underground catchment tank equipped with an automatic tap water refill device.
