seedless cucumber transplants is very high [Canadian dollar (C$) 1.5/transplant in the winter and C$1.3/transplant in the summer (L. Wilson, personal communication)]. Therefore, we conducted a research project to develop a twin-head “V” high-wire system on

). One such study sought to evaluate high-wire cucumber ‘Cumlaude’ transplant growth under a low solar DLI (6.3 mol·m −2 ·d −1 ), with HPS or monochromatic B or R LED SL that increased the DLI by 3.7 mol·m −2 ·d −1 ( Hernandez and Kubota, 2015 ). No

used to justify the lack of grafting in the United States. The first is that U.S. labor costs are too high for manual grafting to be a feasible component of transplant production. Second, U.S. tomato fruit production systems may not generate the
