Project: Optimal control of nitrate accumulation in grenhouse lettuce and other leafy vegetables.(Nitrate Control in Lettuce (NICOLET)).
- project duration
- 01-FEB-99 – 31-JUL-02
- The NICOLET project aims at providing new insight in the physiological background of nitrate accumulation in lettuce and at identifying new ways to control the nitrate concentration in the crop. The further development of a simple dynamic crop model will make it possible to apply the new concept to quantitative prediction and control. A simple software tool will be developed which can be applied by growers to comply with the European regulation on maximum nitrate levels in lettuce.
