Comparison of methods of water supply to hothouse tomatoes

, : Comparison of methods of water supply to hothouse tomatoes. Acta Horticulturae (35): 61-69

In comparisons of conventional sprinkler irrigation with strip sprinkling (low-level sprinkling every other row) and trickle irrigation, yields obtained with the last 2 methods were higher than those from conventional sprinkling.
