THE EFFECT OF VARYING WATER-SUPPLY ON YIELD OF TOMATOES AND CUCUMBERS UNDER GLASS

K.H. Dunkel
Due to the great extent in cultivating tomatoes and cucumbers commercially it is of vital economic importance to know and also to be able to control the effect of the growing factor water. The water consumption of tomatoes and cucumbers has therefore quite ofter been investigated in respect to plant physiological and technical aspects as well. The relationships between water uptake and transpiration and stomatal (2, 14) are known. Only a relatively small portion of the moisture available in the soil is used by plants while the greater part evaporates from
