Dehydration and deformation of root plugs at transplanting affect yield potential of transplanted cabbage seedings


, : Dehydration and deformation of root plugs at transplanting affect yield potential of transplanted cabbage seedings. Applied Plant Science 8(2): 52-53

Containerized vegetable seedlings are supposed to reduce the variation in yield and time to maturity typical of direct-sown or bare-root seedlings. This is frequently not the case in practice. Field investigation of non-uniform cabbage plants suggested that roots of seedlings were being deformed during transplanting, although this was clearly not the cause of poor plant growth. Observation of typical transplanting techniques indicated that root desiccation could also be involved. Results indicated that both root deformation and desiccation were involved in reducing plant growth, with yield losses of up to 30% recorded for cabbages.
