Abstract


The aim of the study was to identify some healthy technological solutions for carrot production in the agricultural area Aiton, Cluj County, for three carrot varieties: Royal Chantenay, Atomic Red and Purple Haze F1, especially in the actual conditions of climate worming and aridity (risk situations and areas strongly affecting the carrot production potential). The experiments were taken in Aiton locality (46° 31' and 46° 31' North latitude; 23°40' and 23°48 ' East longitude) from 2016 to 2018, containing 3 repetitions, 18 analyzed samples and 54 experimental plots. The crops were clustered into a complete randomly multifactorial system with plots of lands. It has been observed that after irrigation there was a 10% increase of the production (2.73 t/ha), compared to the crops that were not irrigated; also, fertilization by zeolite increased the carrot production by 27.1%, while the chemical fertilization increased the harvest only with 14.9%.
