Constructing the Greenhouses: I began the structure of the greenhouses in mid-November. Each greenhouse appears like 2 connected half cyndrical tubes of 52 meters long, 20 meters wide and 3 meters high. The greenhouses have a framework made of galvanized iron pipelines and a polyethylene plastic skin of 180 micron, resistant against ultraviolet rays. The greenhouses are developed alongside each various other and also with a space of 4 meters. Taking into consideration the sufficient resource of sunshine in the area as well as the critical matter of supplying the warmth, I determined to build the greenhouses in north-south direction; for that reason I can decrease the fuel consumption by %20. It needs to additionally be discussed that the home heating installments kept up gas oil (2 furnaces for each and every greenhouse), which were adjusted by a thermostat and also the overall taken in gas oil during the growth duration was 40,000 liters. The building and construction of the greenhouses, which was done by a private service provider as well as under my guidance was over in 7 days.
Delineation and also Identifying Seeding Distances: after delineation, ten ridges with 2 seeding rows of one meter broad each, and 9 creeks of 90 cm each were made. I cucumber companion plants establish 2 rows of pipes, which had openings with sizes of 0.035 inches, on each ridge, considering that trickle watering was thought about to be the main system for irrigation in the greenhouses.
Growing Procedures: I chose elite range seeds (Royal), as well as soaked them in water for 10 hours prior to farming. A quite brand-new thing I carried out in cultivation process was covering the ridges with black polyethylene with a size of 1.5 meter each as well as I put about 10 centimeters of the sides of the plastic under the ground. This was done to boost the dirt temperature level by 4-5 Centigrade; this could boost the advancement of the origins as well as improve the plant’s return consequently. Also the black shade of the plastic disables the development of the weeds. It was an absolutely beneficial task. I watered the earth thoroughly the day in the past. In late-Nov., I grew the seeds in 2 rows on each ridge with a room of 50 centimeters and also in depth of 2 cm. The area between the rows was 80 centimeters. Besides, I grew 50 various other seeds in little flower holders shielded under plastic covers to utilize them in instance the seeds in the main part did not grow.
Monitoring Refine: after planting the seeds, I considered a steady temperature level for greenhouses during development duration; 22C at night and 27C in the day. When the plants had 8-10 leaves, i.e. 20 days after seeding, I did not start irrigation yet, as well as the only thing I did was assisting the bushes upwards utilizing hanging strings that were fastened to steel cords taken care of in the elevation of 2.5 meters from the ground. I started Trickled Irrigation in regular intervals as well as with an extremely low stress; irrigation was done 2-3 times a week in ordinary and also after the ridges were dry. I likewise supplied the bushes with plant food services in each watering up to completion of harvest procedure. The kinds of plant foods and also the quantity made use of for both greenhouses are as follow: manure 150 kg, ammonium phosphate 30 kg, potassium sulfate 200 kg, magnesium sulfate 70 kg. I mixed the plant foods with water at a 1 to 100 proportion, as well as I cut the fertilization in half in gloomy days. Then my workers and also I began pruning the bushes up until the harvest day.
Harvest Refine: after 5-6 weeks the shrubs awaited harvest. Collecting was done every mid-day by me as well as the workers using gloves and also sharp sheers to stop damaging the shrubs. Roughly 20 tons of cucumber were harvested from each greenhouse. So I offered the fruits after safe packaging at the area. Gathering mored than by the end of May next year, as well as from that day on, I rented out the greenhouses to an additional individual.
