Post-planting management techniques for melons: fertiliser management and temperature management

The climate is colder after planting, and melons are closely related to the quality of the fruit after planting, so management is very important, so you must pay more attention. Here we learn about the key points of melon management techniques after planting, including fertilizer management, temperature management, etc.

A. Planting methods for melons in greenhouses

The density of planting should be determined according to the type of facility and the characteristics of the variety. Early spring facilities thin-skinned melon planting density is generally 2400 ~ 3200 plants per acre. According to the characteristics of the variety, plant growth is suitable for sparse planting, plant growth is weak can be appropriate dense planting.

In addition, according to the type of facilities, climate characteristics to determine a reasonable planting time. In general, when planting thin-skinned melons in early spring, the temperature in the facility should be stable at 10°C or above. When planting, choose a sunny morning with a cold tail and a warm head.

Fertiliser and water management after planting

The melon prefers a well-aerated sandy loam soil. If there is too much water and the soil lacks oxygen, the melon will be susceptible to disease, and the thin-skinned melon is more resistant to moisture than the thick-skinned melon. At the same time, melons are a fertiliser-loving crop and need a good supply of fertiliser throughout their reproductive life.

Thin-skinned melons require low air humidity, with a relative humidity of 50% to 60% in the greenhouse. After planting, in case of extreme low temperatures, irrigation can be carried out at night to protect the seedlings.

Ventilation management for melons after planting

The amount of ventilation should be reasonably adjusted according to weather changes. The ventilation time can be delayed in the morning to increase the temperature inside the greenhouse and enhance photosynthesis. In the evening, the ventilation can be reduced to allow the plants to breathe and consume too much nutrients.

Fourth, the light management of melon after planting

Melons like strong light and are not shade tolerant. Adequate light can make melon plants grow strong.

The light in the facility is poorer than in the open field, and the lack of light is a limiting factor in the cultivation of thin-skinned melons in early spring. Therefore, measures should be taken to increase the intensity and duration of light in the shed to promote the robust growth of the plants.
