|Abstract:||In summer, the humid tropics are more temperate than much of the temperate zone. Growth and uptake of N, P, and K by pineapple did not increase at root-zone temperatures above 25C and were inhibited by temperatures below that. Use of black plastic mulch was shown as an example of how pineapple crop soil temperature can be favorably affected.|
