Cucumber crop guide: All there is to know about cucumber crop nutrition & cucumber fertilizer

This thorough crop guide covers all the aspects of cucumber plant nutrition: growth stages, how to grow cucumbers, fertilization recommendation and much more

Haifa's deep understanding in cucumber plant nutrition is fully exploited in this comprehensive crop guide.
Here is a sample of the crop nutrition information you can find in this guide:
  • The optimum time to introduce hives into the field is when approximately 25% of the plants are beginning to flower.
  • The cucumber grows best under conditions of high temperature, humidity, and light intensity and with an uninterrupted supply of water and nutrients.
  • Air temperature is the main environmental component influencing vegetative growth, flower initiation, fruit growth, and fruit quality.
  • Close spacing increases yields, provides more uniform maturity and reduces weed problems. It also results in shorter fruit with a lighter color.
  • Numerous studies have showed a linear decrease in the yields of cucumbers as the salt concentration of the irrigation water increased.
  • Crop yields are highly dependent on N availability to the plant.
  • It has been shown clearly the positive effect of potassium fertilization on cucumber yields.
  • Potassium has a well-known effect of both enhancing plant resistance to pathogens and of reducing the impact of the infection.
