For the first time, the influence of the nutrition surface of 100, 90, 80, and 70 (plants/m2) on the mizuna’s growth, development, and productivity (efficiency) was studied in open-air hydroponics conditions. It was revealed that during 2 vegetation periods, the variant of 90 plants/m2 nutrition surface provides favorable conditions (1.3 times-2.1 times) for the high yield of mizuna in hydroponic culture.
At the same time, plant raw material received in conditions of different planting concentrations exceeded soil culture 1.1 times-2.3 times. In mizuna leaves, the amount of Ca was higher at 9%-64% in the variants of 80 plants/m2 and 90 plants/m2 nourishment surface. Although the low content of Vitamin C was observed in a variant of 90 plants/m2 (in 24%-46%), but it wasn’t inferior to the 100 plants/m2 and 70 plants/m2 varieties with the output. At the same time, it exceeded the other variants 1.4-1.7 times.
