ABSTRACT Corchorus olitorius is mainly cultivated in Africa and is used in the human diet for its nutraceutical proprieties. In this work, C. olitorius was grown in a floating system using a standard (NS100%) or halved (NS50%) nutrient solution. Yield was evaluated at harvest when plants reached the baby leaf stage. Quality of leaves was estimated by measuring sugars, nitrate, chlorophylls, carotenoids, polyphenols, and anthocyanins. Yield was similar to other common leafy vegetables cultivated… Expand
