Plant spacing

The optimum space per plant is generally agreed to be 0.35-0.40 m2. Ideally, the same spacing should be used between rows of plants as between plants in the row However, to facilitate working among the plants, use double rows for planting. Place the first two rows 80 cm apart and allow 1.2 m for a walking path before repeating two more rows spaced at 80 cm apart; repeat the process as necessary. Then space the plants in the rows at 35-40 cm. When light conditions are favorable, such as for late spring crops and fall crops, space the plants more closely Although it is important to use all the space in the greenhouse as efficiently as possible, excessive crowding tends to result in small fruit and outbreaks of leaf disease.
