We report results of a trial carried out with the aim to study the growth and the root biometry of muskmelon in relation to plastic mulch and irrigation technique. Irrigation positively influenced the growth and the production of muskmelon, thanks to a higher crop growth rate (CGR) and to a higher relative growth rate (RGR). Positive, although less pronounced. was the effect of the plastic mulch on the aforesaid parameters. Shoot/root ratio resulted very low, with a value close or lower than 1.

Abstract

We report results of a trial carried out with the aim to study the growth and the root biometry of muskmelon in relation to plastic mulch and irrigation technique. Irrigation positively influenced the growth and the production of muskmelon, thanks to a higher crop growth rate (CGR) and to a higher relative growth rate (RGR). Positive, although less pronounced. was the effect of the plastic mulch on the aforesaid parameters. Shoot/root ratio resulted very low, with a value close or lower than 1.
