Lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) is a cool season crop susceptible to physiological problems including tipburn, bolting, ribbiness, rib discoloration, and the development of loose, puffy heads when grown at supra-optimal temperatures .At sub-optimal temperatures, growth can be slowed or plant death can occur. Optimal temperatures range from 17 to 28 °C in the day and 3 to 12 °C at night Cited by: 1. Most gardeners who grow lettuce raise the leaf type, either with green or reddish leaves. This type is a fast-growing, long-lasting lettuce used for salads, sandwiches, and in wilted lettuce salads. Thin or space leaf types to 4 to 6 inches apart. Cultivate carefully because lettuce is shallow-rooted. Use frequent, light waterings to encourageFile Size: 16KB.
This publication is a joint effort of the seven disciplines that comprise the Georgia Vegetable Team. It is comprised of 14 topics on tomato, including history of tomato production, cultural practices, pest management, harvesting, handling and marketing. This publication provides information that will assist producers in improving the profitability of tomato production, whether they are new or. Succession plant lettuce for a continual crop, but avoid long days and heat of early-mid summer. May be grown right through the winter where the weather is mild, or under row cover, cold frames, etc. Lettuce is healthy and rich in Vitamins A & C. COOK IT! Lettuce Recipes .

Production systems for growing greens range from high tech hydroponic systems for growing lettuce to growing mixed greens in soilless mix in containers on benches to growing in soil in ground beds using minimal or no heat.
The Plant Science, Cobleskill, NY is using existing ebb and flow benching for short-term hydroponic raft lettuce production (Country Folks Grower July ).
One. Heat Tolerant Greens: Varieties for the Hottest Summer Months As our season slowly evolves from spring into summer, those Production of heat resistant lettuce book us who grow greens all season long are thinking about how to change up successions to those that will put up with heat.

Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is an annual plant of the daisy family, is most often grown as a leaf vegetable, but sometimes for its stem and e is most often used for salads, although it is also seen in other kinds of food, such as soups, sandwiches and wraps; it can also be grilled.
One variety, the woju (t:萵苣/s:莴苣), or asparagus lettuce (Celtuce), is grown for Family: Asteraceae. The most heat resistant kinds of lettuce in my experience are the oakleaf varieties. Here in Australia we have a green oakleaf lettuce called Darwin, named after Australia's most tropical city.
It is by far the hardiest lettuce I know, but any light green oakleaf variety does well in my garden. In the Piedmont, lettuce is intermediate in season and probably is best as a late spring and early fall crop.
Romaine has requirements similar to head lettuce, except it can stand more heat. Butterhead and leaf types can stand even more heat and have a longer season of production.
Lettuce grows best in a temperature range of about 45 to 75 F. In weather hotter than this, the leaves begin to get bitter to the taste. When leaf lettuce bolts—begins to send up its flower shoots—it's a signal that the production of edible lettuce is done for the season.
Leaves harvested after this point will. Greenhouse vegetable production has traditionally been located near population centers, primarily in the northeastern United States. With light being one of the most important factors in greenhouse vegetable production, the Southwest has become an ideal area for future development of this industry, particularly in the winter months when tomato and cucumber prices are at a premium.
The premise of The Produce Contamination Problem is that when human pathogen contamination of fresh produce occurs, it is extremely difficult to reduce pathogen levels sufficiently to assure microbiological safety with the currently available technologies.
A wiser strategy would be to avoid crop production conditions that result in microbial.

Progress 10/01/10 to 06/30/13 Outputs Progress Report Objectives (from AD): To develop heat-tolerant lettuce and spinach germplasm that is adapted to global warming and low land cost areas of California.
Approach (from AD): We will use germplasm screening and breeding to find and create heat- tolerant lettuce and spinach germplasm, and test them in spring and summer trials. Lettuce is a cool-weather annual crop which is not badly damaged by winter cold and light frosts, although differences in tolerance to cold (or heat) may vary appreciably among cultivars.
Heavy frosts will, however, severely scorch the leaves, especially mature Size: 27KB. An Overview of Lettuce Production Systems and Cultivars Used in Hydroponics and Protected Culture in Florida 3 A final model for hydroponic lettuce production is the ground/landscape pot or upright plastic bag model.
Usually filled with media such as coconut coir, perlite, or compos-ted pine bark, these upright containers provide another.
Now that I grow lots of other kinds of lettuce almost year-round, I appreciate the benefits of oak leaf lettuce even more. Tolerant of Heat, Drought, and Cold. As my early gardening experience with oak leaf lettuce proved—and all my experience since has confirmed—this stuff is incredibly heat tolerant and drought resistant.5/5(9).
Introduction: Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is the fourth most important vegetable crop grown hydroponically in greenhouses proceeded by tomatoes, European cucumbers and peppers. Although greenhouse production of lettuce is very small in comparison to field grown, it has a specific market niche as a gourmet, high-quality item.
Being clean and free of soil, it is particularly popular in restaurants. Lettuce is now one of the world’s most important salad crops and is grown worldwide.

Lettuce is a crop that you need to experiment with yourself to see which varieties grow best in your soil. If you are planting in warmer months, you may need a heat-resistant variety such as Jericho and oakleaf. The most heat tolerant kinds of lettuce are the open leafed varieties (Looseleaf).Butterhead lettuce is usually known for being among the most heat-tolerant and bolt-resistant of all the lettuce types.
Many lettuces can be successfully started from seed in early spring and harvested through summer, especially if you live in a mild summer region, but.Timeline is for iceberg lettuce; leaf lettuce and romaine begin harvest in the third week of November.
Spring mix and spinach are planted from October through February and harvest November through March. Minor groundwork is conducted at the end of each lettuce crop for subsequent rotation crops (wheat, alfalfa, etc). Major groundwork isFile Size: 1MB.
