Auxym treated Perennial wall rocket, cv. Nature, grown in an unheated greenhouse during autumn-spring, winter and winter-spring had on average a 4.1 % shorter crop cycle (ns), a 12.4 % higher leaf area index, 20.8 % more plant dry matter, a 11.4 % higher yield, a 1.6 % higher mean weight (ns), leafs contained 7.3 % more chlorophyll, 9.7 % more dry matter, 4.3 % more malic acid (ns), 12.8 % more oxalic acid, 10.7 % more citric acid, 5 % more isocitric acid (ns), 14.3 % more NO3 (ns), 10.3 % more P,  0.8 % less K (ns), 1.8 % less S (ns), 8.7 % more Ca, 3.8 % less Mg (ns), 15.1 % more polyphenols, 93.3 % more ascorbic acid and had a 27.1 % higher anti-oxidant activity compared to the untreated control plants. There wasn't an effect of growing cycle on the measured parameters.
