Sulphur coated urea, casein and other slow release nitrogen fertilizers for tomato production

, : Sulphur coated urea, casein and other slow release nitrogen fertilizers for tomato production. Acta Horticulturae (26): 165-174

The practical use of slow-release fertilizers to increase the production of greenhouse tomatoes was studied with cvs Ware Cross and Eurocross BB grown in peat. Yields were lower with sulphur-coated urea (SCU) combined with calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) than with a standard N treatment, half as CAN and half as urea formaldehyde; the foliar-N level was lower with SCU alone than with the standard treatment early in the season, but was higher at the end.
