Population Densities and Blunting Levels for Contrasting Varieties of Greenhouse Tomatoes

  Due to population growth, scarce arable area and environmental problems, the need to increase agricultural production leads to the use of intensive production systems such as hydroponics and greenhouses. The aim of this study was to evaluate the behavior of agronomic management in varieties...

Effect of Plant Row Arrangement on Yield Components of Bell Pepper

  An alternative to the production of bell pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) under greenhouse conditions is the management of plants in a high-density population, with blunting above the fourth branching to achieve short cycles and arrangement of plant rows at different heights to form a stair-like...
