Hydroponic Saffron Cultivation and the Effects of Soil Salinity

Abstract

Hydroponic Saffron Cultivation

Chapter 1. Introduction

Fig. 1: Saffron is a triploid plant, and its violet flowers are incapable of producing seeds.

Chapter 2 Materials and Methods

Fig. 2: Hydroponic cultivation requires a microfiber sponge that comprises four channels; a catchment pipe; a catchment tank; and four pipes that support inlet flow.

Chapter 3. Discussion

Fig.3: The root length decrease in saffron could be due to the amount of light that reached the corms.
Fig. 4: Hydroponically grown corms only blossomed four percent of the time.

Chapter 4. Introduction

Chapter 5 Materials and Methods
