The production of leafy vegetables in different countries is very important to guarantee food to families in rural and urban areas, for that reason vertical containers are implemented to maximize the use of air space in a protected environment. The treatments were T1= 30 centimeters between plants, T2=10 centimeters between plants, T3=20 centimeters between plants and T4=30 centimeters between plants, the last 3 treatments are in a vertical system and the rest in a horizontal or traditional system. The yields obtained from the different treatments are as follows: T1= 31.8 Kg, T2= 23.7Kg, T3= 58.2 Kg and T4= 80.2 Kg/m2. It is also worth mentioning the beneficial cost of the different treatments: 1.4 Bs, 0.93 Bs, 2.3 Bs and 3.2 Bs, which means that treatments 3 and 4 are the ones that obtain the highest yield with respect to the control treatment 1.
