second assessment 13 Aug 2013

John made the second assessment today: number of cells per tray with no germination or very small/abnormal seedlings. 

The average number per tray varied with crop, but this may not be significant:

Lettuce       3.9
Chinese cabbage         8.9
Cabbage         9.2

The differences between the growing media were small, apart from No.3 which was much worse for lettuce and cabbage.  No single medium is a clear winner over all three test crops, so far.

                                best           worst


                  1,2,6 very close second             



Chinese cabbage



3 very close second

Cabbage                                  8             3
