the 60 to 65 d listed by the supplier that would occur under field conditions. Longer production times have to be weighed against the cost of realizing the possible yield. Greenhouse production exposes plants to as much light as possible and plant

Sphagnum peat is a finite resource that is often used in the horticultural industry as a component in many substrates specifically in greenhouse production for transplants ( Abad et al., 2001 ). Peat is mined from its natural wetland habitat, and
