In this research, the effect of foliar spraying of wood vinegar on the growth and biochemical traits of cucumber seedlings in different culture mediums in a factorial experiment in a completely randomized design with three replications was investigated. This experiment was carried out in the spring of 2022 in a research greenhouse at the University of Jiroft. The test factors include two types of culture media (75% cocopeat + 25% peat moss and 75% palm peat + 25% vermicompost) and 5 combinations of wood vinegar (control, oak wood vinegar 0.5 and 1% and wood vinegar Pistachio 0.5 and 1%). The results showed that seedlings grown on palmpeat + vermicompost had maximum values for the fresh and dry weight of roots and shoots, root length, photosynthetic pigments, and auxin. Spraying pistachio wood vinegar at 0.5% and 1% on cocopeat + peat moss and palmpeat + vermicompost substrates, respectively, led to the highest value of root weight. Using 1% pistachio wood vinegar on cocopeat + peat moss substrate increased the root fresh weight (29.1%), the shoot dry weight (13.8%), and the ratio of shoot dry weight to root dry weight (28.4%) compared to the control. Using 1% oak wood vinegar on palmpeat + vermicompost substrate increased the root length (51.9%), chlorophyll b (13.8%), auxin (24.7%), and the total phenol (21.7%) compared to the control. Ultimately, this research suggested that using 1% oak wood vinegar on palmpeat + vermicompost substrate can produce optimal results for the production of cucumber seedlings.
