Evaluating rootzone stresses and the role of the root system on rose crop productivity and fertilizer-water use efficiency: Leachate chemical quality and cumulative biomass and flower yields


Leachate chemical quality & cumulative biomass and flower yields


Since the last report we collected data for two additional flowering cycles. But before we get into the biomass and flower yield data, let’s examine the leachates collected from representative one-half root sections receiving the different stressing solutions described in the previous report. In addition to being interested in the leachates’ chemical quality (namely EC and pH), determination of their volume allowed us to adjust our irrigation events and volumes as to approximate the targeted leaching fractions of 25% across all treatments.
