Wyoming, requires protection from potential frosts, high winds, and large day-to-night temperature swings. Greenhouse and high-tunnel production are potential ways to provide season extension and quality protection in the harsh Wyoming climate. Current

similar trend occurred with plants grown in sand. Based on these analyses, greenhouse production of broadleaf sagittaria should include ≥2 g·L −1 of fertilizer and should use subirrigation, as that irrigation scheme yielded higher values for all

( Fereres et al., 2003 ). Although deficit irrigation plays a very limited role in floriculture production, ET reduction and irrigation water reclamation may have important implications for greenhouse growers, especially those intending to adopt
