Sample text

The disorder seems to be more prevalent when peat or peat-sand substrates are used, since the capillary properties of the material result in evaporation from the saturated upper surface of the substrate. Rockwool cubes show a smaller capillary rise and the surface remains dry. Deep solutions and open gullies are also conducive to evaporation of nutrient solution; if the polyethylene gully is stapled closed, particularly around the stem, evaporation is greatly reduced. C . Physiological Disorders NFT is currently being developed in arid areas where crops can be successfully grown during the cooler months, but problems occur during the summer when solution temperatures may exceed 40°C.
