Amnite A100 was introduced to the plants on the 25th April. Weather conditions were overcast and showery.
1-3: No visible improvements were noticeable
Week 4: The root system emerged from the drain holes of grow bags and spread through the reservoir of water, creating a mat of roots. Visible improvement in the plant leaves was evident.
Week 5: Leaf and fruit colour darkened significantly and root growth had increased by 40-50% over week 4. Fruit length is 15-18% better than what would be expected at the current temperature levels. Main stem fruit setting is now almost complete and no absorbtion of fruit is evident.
Week 6: There is now evidence of Leaf growth more associated with Autumn conditions, i.e. 20 degrees by night and 30+ by day and also humidity levels of 70-80% which is the optimum level of humidity for cucumbers.
