GOMEZ-GONZALEZ, Adrián y PIMENTEL-LOPEZ, José. EFFECT OF TOPOLOGICAL LAYOUT ON CUCUMBER PRODUCTION UNDER HYDROPONIC FIELD CONDITIONS. Idesia [online]. 2009, vol.27, n.3, pp. 15-18. ISSN 0718-3429. doi: 10.4067/S0718-34292009000300003.
Two different topological settlements on cucumber were tested to study the effects on production under hydroponic systems. Same number ofplants was established infour rectangular concrete boxes, two ofthem containing four rows and two three rows. Water was pumped into the aggregate médium trough a subirrigation system three times a doy during the crop season. There were no statistical differences on production and surface leqfarea by using the Canfield line for this last. However, the three rows layout showed greater surface leafarea during the middle ofthe crop season than the four rows system.
