Ten years of hydroponic lettuce research

Abstract: This review article describes the highlights of ten years of hydroponic lettuce (Lactuca sativa; butterhead lettuce) research conducted at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY, USA) throughout most of the nineties. Both the nutrient film technique (NFT) and the deep flow system were used for experimentation.

Our research group has experimented with many forms of hydroponics but have found this floating system to be the most robust and forgiving of the available systems.
