  2. Pythium root-rot suppression from vermicompost to improve the profitability of hydroponic baby leaf spinach production.

    SBC: RT SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: 812

    Hydroponic vegetable production in the U.S. has experienced steady substantial growth due to its ability to produce fresh produce, year round close to the source(s) of consumption. A major obstacle to hydroponic production is the gap in effective conventional fungicides and sustainable/organic nutrient sources to protect edible raw food crop against significant root diseases such as Pythium. Fresh ...
