Horticultural production in most parts of the tropics is extremely difficult due to high rate of infection by the soil-borne diseases. At the moment, utilization of hydroponics systems for the commercial production of crops is very limited. This study, therefore, attempted to investigate the potential of growing gypsophila using different hydroponics systems. The experiments were laid out in a split-plot design. Three hydroponics systems were used as the main plots, i.e. elevated tray, ground…

Decline in the availability of suitable land and good fertile soil for vegetable production due to climate change, urbanisation and increasing population has resulted in studies to find alternative

Effects of Hydroponics Systems on Growth, Yield and Quality of Zucchini (Cucurbita pepo L.)

The results showed that there were significant differences in the growth, yield and nutritional content of zucchini cultivars grown in the different hydroponics systems and it is recommended that Terminator zuc squash cultivar can be produced in the elevated tray hydroponic system.

Effects of Different Hydroponics Systems and Growing Media on Physiological Parameters of Spinach

Evaluation of Plant Growth on Expanded Black Cotton Soil

In aggregate hydroponics, the suitability of a particular medium is often guided by its physical properties. However these may not provide adequate evaluation. By growing a crop, the growth

Studies of Vegetative Growth, Inflorescence Development and Eco-Dormancy Formation of Abscission Layers in Streptocarpus formosus (Gesneriaceae)

Investigation of the effectiveness of applying root zone heating to S. formosus plants grown in deep water culture hydroponics during the eco-dormancy period revealed that while all heated solutions significantly prevented the formation of abscission layer formation, they had a less significant effect on inflorescence formation, with only 18 °C having the greatest positive effect on flower development.
