Peat, bark compost and brown coal as growing medium for greenhouse tomatoes


, : Peat, bark compost and brown coal as growing medium for greenhouse tomatoes. Acta Horticulturae (37): 2028-2031

Tomatoes in PVC rings or polyethylene sacks grew and yielded as well in pine bark compost as in sphagnum peat, but yields were lower when plants were grown on brown coal. All substrates received a complete fertilizer and liquid feeding. If the rings containing peat were placed on a mineral soil the plants cropped more heavily than if a 7- or 15-cm-deep layer of peat was used as the substrate. With brown coal and bark compost this substrate response was not observed.
