Fresh weight and flowering of tomato plants as influenced by container type and watering conditions

, : Fresh weight and flowering of tomato plants as influenced by container type and watering conditions. Acta Horticulturae (39): 237-247

Tomato plants, Moneymaker, were sown in November in peat/compost in plastic pots or soil blocks and irrigated at 3 levels: dry (surface irrigation to avoid temporary wilting); moist (frequent surface irrigation); or wet (sub-irrigation, with the pots standing in 1-2 cm water). Plant fresh weights at harvest in February were 66.0, 94.9 and 114.3 g for pot-grown plants in the dry, moist and wet treatments, respectively, and 64.3, 96.9 and 74.0 g for those grown in soil blocks.
