Effects of fumigation and mulching on yield of ripe tomatoes for the fresh market in Liberia

Acta Horticulturae (33): 105-112
Effects of fumigation and mulching on yield of ripe tomatoes for the fresh market in Liberia
Seeds of Urbana tomato plants were field-grown during the dry season with or without Dowfume MC-33 (67% CH3Br + 33% CCl3NO3) fumigation and with or without a black plastic mulch. After transplanting, Rhizoctonia solani killed 27% of the plants on plots that were fumigated and mulched, and only 10% on fumigated, unmulched plots. Marketable fruit yields, number of marketable fruits and weight of individual fruits were greater on fumigated than on unfumigated soil.
