ORGANIC ROMAINE LETTUCE TRIAL

MONTEREY COUNTY, CALIFORNIA USA

RDI conducted a trial with a commercial lettuce grower in Monterey County, CA to produce organic romaine hearts. Grower established transplants with sprinkler applications and then switched to drip irrigation. RDI was able to show 29% water savings, and does not require sprinkler applications to establish plants. Grower also applied two equal applications of organic fertilizer as standard practice in Control Group 2 (CG2). RDI and another control group (CG1) received only the first application which was done preplant. With less water and half the fertilizer, RDI plants grew larger and produced a higher quality yield than both control groups.
