The effect of heating air or nutrient solution on productivity and fruit quality of cantaloupe grown in winter by using Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) in comparison with soil cultivation



The effect of heating air or nutrient solution on productivity and fruit quality of cantaloupe grown in winter by using Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) in comparison with soil cultivation



Acta Horticulturae (614(Vol 2)): 655-661



An experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of heating air or nutrient solution on the productivity and fruit quality of melons Regal grown in winter using nutrient film technique (NFT) compared with soil cultivation under plastic houses. Nutrient solution adjusted to 25 degrees C was adjusted not to be less than 16 degrees C at night.
