New research from the NSW Department of Primary Industries has revealed that greenhouse climate control strategies may lead to improved cucumber yield and marketability, as well as improved postharvest quality, potentially leading to improved gross profit margins for greenhouse growers. Thus, environmental factors within greenhouses – including planting density, temperature, ventilation, and humidity – can significantly affect the production and quality of cucumbers. Trial results indicate a trend for increased marketable yield as control conditions improve. Post-harvest produce grown in controlled conditions also retains its quality for longer, comparative to produce grown in environments with fewer control conditions.
