separately. A four-way analysis of variance was conducted to test the influence of types of biocontainers, plant species, locations, and trial seasons on shoot dry weights and percentage of biocontainer decomposition. To test the effect of location on

is a concern that the more durable biofabrics may also be slow to decompose or biodegrade in the soil after the growing season ( Cowan et al., 2013 ). Decomposition of biodegradable mulch after the growing season is an important issue for growers

Soilless substrates are dynamic due to their predominantly organic nature, changing both physically and chemically over time. Substrate decomposition, settling, or a combination of the two can cause shrinkage in substrates. This shrinkage or

Lakes region and much of the Atlantic Coast. Our results indicate that the 2-week wait can be reduced under certain conditions and that 1 week may in fact be optimal. Incorporated residue of succulent vegetables in the warm growing season can decompose
