Feasibility of Trellised Cucumber Production using HORTOMALLAS netting

Feasibility of Trellised Cucumber Production using HORTOMALLAS netting

Trellising with a netting like HORTOMALLAS® guarantees great production results as compared to non trellised cucumber crops.

Trellised was evaluate for its effects on yields of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) cultivars Dasher II, Marketmore 76, and PetoTripleMech at Lane also Wilbutton, Okla. Trellising improved total also the marketable yield at both locations compared with ground culture. `PetoTripleMech’, evaluated as a fresh-market cultivar, produced yields equal to, or higher than, the other cultivars. Average marketable fruit weight was not affect by trellising but was affect by cultivar at Lane, with `PetoTripleMech’ having the heaviest fruit. Economic analysis indicated that trellising is a viable management system for small-scale cucumber production.

Cucumber trellis
Trellis net is a good option because it increases crop yield and helps manage crop space.

Abstract.

Trellising was evaluate for its effects on yields of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) cultivars Dasher II, Marketmore 76, and PetoTripleMech at Lane and Wilbutton, Okla. Trellising improved total and marketable yield at both locations compared with ground culture. ‘PetoTripleMech’, evaluated as a fresh-market cultivar, produced

yields equal to, or higher than, the other cultivars. Average marketable fruit weight was not affect by trellising but was affect by cultivar at Lane, with ‘PetoTripleMech’ having the heaviest fruit. Economic analysis indicated that trellising is a viable management system for small-scale cucumber production.

Fresh-market cucumbers are hand-harvest several times during a season. Trellising has been suggest to increase harvesting efficiency in cucumber while improving yield by reducing damage to vines and improving net photosynthetic rate (Hanna and Adams, 1984; Konsler and Strider, 1973; Swingle and Mullins, 1976). Although combinations of twine and wire or wire alone were use to support the plants in the foregoing studies, wire exposed to direct sun can bum cucumber plants (Baker, 1977). Since these reports were publish, new trellising materials (reusable, unknotted, woven nylon mesh), cucumber cultivars, and cultural methods (bedding and mulching with black plastic) have been develop. To the best of our knowledge, there is no information concerning the response of cucumbers grown with trellises on raised beds, drip irrigation, also plastic mulch.

Cucumber net
Fresh high quality cucumbers can be harvested with the help of the trellis netting.

This study was design to determine if trellised cucumber, in combination with improve cultural practices, can increase yield of select cucumber cultivars relative to unsupport plants.

Cultivar trials (Makus, 1986; OSU, 1988) andan economic assessment (Schatzer et al., 1986) suggest that cucumber has potential for increasing economic return to producers. The previous studies, with various trellised cucumber methods, assum that the cost of trellising would be compensate for by improved yield. However, these assumptions were not test.

Therefore, a second objective of this study was to examine the economic feasibility of trellising for fresh-market cucumber production.

at Wilburton. Additional N, 17 kg·ha-1

at Lane and 45 kg·ha-1 at Wilburton, was add in one application through the drip irrigation system during the fourth harvest week. In all cases,urea was the N source. The gynoecious slicing cultivar Dasher II and the monoecious slicing cultivar Marketmore 76 were compare. In previous observational trials (1989) in Wilburton, the gynoecious cultivar PetoTripleMech, primarily use as a pickling cucumber, produce fruit of a size, quality, also the quantity that would allow it to be consider as a slicing cucumber. For these reasons, ‘PetoTripleMech’ was include in this study to evaluate its performance against establish slicing cultivars.

Cucumber trellis netting
In the market you can find the trellis net of different sizes and its cost is very economical.

Beds

(≈20 cm high, 6.1 m long, 76 cm wide) were form on 1.8-m centers. Drip irrigation (0.38 mm, 30.5-cm orifice spacing) and black plastic mulch (0.025 mm thick) were apply concurrently. Holes were punch through the mulch also seed planted on 46-cm centers in a single row per bed on 26 May 1989.

Plants were reduce to one per hill, 1 week after emergence. Woven, reusable, unknotted, nylon trellis netting was attached to two steel T-posts, one on each end of the plots, at a height of 1.5 m. The experiment incorporated a factorial design (three cultivars also two trellis treatments) in randomized blocks with eight replications at Lane and six at Wilburton.

Although randomization caused trellised and ground culture plots to sometimes be adjacent to each other, effects of shading were minimal since plots

were 1.8 m apart arranged in an east-west orientation at both locations. Ground culture guard rows surrounded the field at both locations. Because harvests were not necessarily made on the same days at both locations, totals for harvests in a week, instead of each harvest, are report for both locations for 6 weeks (10 July to 12 Aug.). Fruit were grad in accordance with the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture standards (U.S. Dept. Agr., 1958).

Total and marketable fruit (U.S. grade no. 1 and better) yields were record. Fruit were consider to be unmarketable if noticeably damaged (including disease). Analyses of variance were perform for each measure variable, using General Linear Models procedures of the Statistical Analysis System (SAS Institute, Inc., Cary, N.C.). Mean separations were performe using Fisher’s LSD. There were differences in total and marketable yields due to cultivars at both locations (Table 1). ‘PetoTripleMech’ and ‘Dasher II’ produced the highest total yields at Lane also Wilburton. The highest marketable yield was produced by ‘PetoTripleMech’ at bothlocations. ‘Dasher II’ had higher marketable yields than ‘Marketmore 76’ at Wilburton, but not at Lane. Total and marketable yields for all cultivars at Wilburton were consis
