In regards to NO3- content of fruit, the highest value was found in organically grown green peppers and the lowest values were observed in red peppers regardless of organic, low-input and soilless systems [ ].

    Peat contains higher potassium than its mixture substrates [ ] and Quality of horticultural products book has been reported that growing media with high potassium could increase the vitamin C content in plants [ ]. As a result, a typical symptom generally appears known as blossom-end rot disease on tomato fruit which lower the quality greatly [ 74 ]. However, when perlite compared with rice husk substrates it was found that plants grown in rice husk had higher growth and yield in the later [ ]. Located in Fresno and later in Parlier, California, his primary specialty has been the biology and control of postharvest plant pathogens of citrus fruit and table grapes, with a thorough understanding of the production and handling of these and other tree and vine crops.

Climate — Many horticultural crops will only grow and reproduce under certain climatic conditions. In this regards, high EC and nutrient level in the soilless medium are necessary to meet the crop requirements at the high rates obtained under protected cultivation [ ] which in turns will enhance product quality grown therein [ ].

It also contained more sugar, acid and sodium, resulting in a distinct taste. It is successfully used to control plant diseases [ 21 - 24 ]. Transpiration influences transport and translocation of calcium in the plant body. Higher EC values in the growing medium may cause decrease in fruit yield but on the other hand, it improves the taste by increasing dry matter, soluble solids, and titratable acidity [ 90 ].

Turf management includes all aspects of the production and maintenance of turf grass for sports, leisure use or amenity use.

Therefore, nitrogen would not be readily available for the plants in soilless substrate which in turns may lead to potential quality losses of the produce [ 31 ]. It is important to allow yourself the opportunity to step back and critically review how things have been going.

Therefore, excess use of nitrogenous fertilizer increases the concentration of nitrate in plant tissue and simultaneously decreases that of ascorbic acid, it may have double negative effect on the quality of plant foods [ 67 ].

Thus, physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the substrates must correlate with water and fertilizer supply, climatic conditions and plant demand [ - ]. Value-added processed products are products that can be obtained from main products and by-products after some sort of processing and subsequently marketed for an increased profit margin.

Rockwool substrate can be used to produce melons hydroponically [] but costs would be higher than other substrate materials and its disposal is very difficult []. Crop cultivation in reused substrates revealed both positive and negative responses compared to fresh ones.

Many studies also suggested that tomato fruits grown in organic substrates had higher dry matter, vitamin C, and nitrogen compared to rockwool [ 8081 ].
