Postharvest quality of cucumber grown by soilless culture

Postharvest quality of cucumber grown by soilless culture

Acta Horticulturae ( 517): 287-292

Shelf life of cucumber fruits is dependent on the preharvest conditions prevailing during the growing season as well as on storage conditions. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of growing factors in soilless culture on postharvest performance of cucumbers. Test plants were grown in bags with 8 litres of rooting volume filled with perlite.
