( Zhang et al., 2015 ). However, extreme high-temperature events are becoming more frequent in south China as a result of increasing temperature and climatic variability, particularly during the flowering phenophase, thereby influencing cultivation ( Yang

Carrot crops are established by direct seeding, and poor stands may occur when sowing is done during extremely low or high temperatures. Many publications relate the negative effects of low temperature on carrot stand establishment ( Cantliffe and

Cell trays for raising vegetable seedlings on a large scale have become increasingly popular because of their low cost; however, the method yields poor emergence rates due to the high temperatures when lettuce seeds are sown in the summer
