  • SummaryTwo different cultivation systems, aeroponics and hydroponics in greenhouse beds, were compared for the production of potato minitubers. [...] Key Result Plants in the aeroponic system showed increased vegetative growth, delayed tuber formation and an extended vegetative cycle of about seven months after transplanting. Therefore in 1999, two production cycles were obtained with the hydroponic system, but only one with the aeroponic system.Expand Abstract
