Resumen

VAZQUEZ-ANGULO, Juan Carlos; GRIMALDO-JUAREZ, Onecimo  y  GONZALEZ-MENDOZA, Daniel. Production of Cucumis sativus in the Mexicali valley, Baja California, México. Idesia [online]. 2013, vol.31, n.3, pp.17-20. ISSN 0718-3429.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34292013000300003.

Cucumber production has increased in Baja California, but its production in the Mexicali Valley is limited due to the semi-arid climate typical of the region. One option for the production of this crop can be greenhouse systems and house-shadow. In this sense, the objective of this study was evaluated the influence of the use of greenhouse and house-shadow in the production of Cucumis sativus in Mexicali Valley. The results showed that the micro-environments generated in both systems had similar temperatures (40 and 39 ° C) during the experiment. However, the relative humidity present in the greenhouse showed more lower values (21%, P < 0.00013) than present in house-shadow (37%). On the other hand the effect of micro-climate in the production of fruit was slightly superior greenhouse (19 kg/m2) than house-shadow (17 kg/m2). Finally, future studies are recommended to know in detail the biochemical and physiological responses of cucumber in the semi-arid agroecosystem in the Mexicali Valley.
