THE EFFECT OF PLANT TRAINING SYSTEM ON YIELDING AND STORABILITY OF CUCUMBER FRUITS


Ryszard KOSSON, Józefa DOBRZAŃSKA
Research Institute of Vegetable CropsKonstytucji 3 Maja 1/3, 96-100 Skierniewice, Poland


Summary

In the greenhouse experiment the effect of four plant training systems on yielding 
and storability of Polish short fruited cucumber cv. Aramis F1 was tested. The fruit
color, their weight loss and marketable value after three weeks storage at 12.5°C
in stretch film were evaluated. It was found that plant training system had significant
effect on early yield of cucumbers. The highest early yield of cucumbers was found
for  plant training system consisting of main stem topped on wire. At the same time
this training system gave the lowest average marketable and total yield of cucumbers
in both years of cultivation. No differences in greenness of fresh fruits after harvest
from different training systems were found. The market value of fruit after storage
for 21 days was generally higher for cucumbers from beginning of harvest season
in comparison to intensive harvest period or last phase of fructifying. There were
no distinct differences after storage in weight losses of cucumbers harvested from
different plant training systems.
