  2. 2. Effects of temperature on germination and juvenile growth in Spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.)

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Crop Production Ecology

    Author : Gabriel von Rosen; [2022]
    Keywords : indoor farming; vertical farming; hydroponics; spinach; seed germination;

    Abstract : As the worlds urban population grows more and more every year, it becomes increasingly important that cities become more self-sufficient on food. Indoor vertical hydroponic farms offer a solution to this by placing the farm in an urban environment and growing plants in a controlled environment. READ MORE
