The effect of pruning and training on the yield of tomato cultivars grown for export in the Sudan

, : The effect of pruning and training on the yield of tomato cultivars grown for export in the Sudan. Acta Horticulturae (33): 115-119

Pruning tomato plants to a single stem, combined with training, increased both the early yield and the proportion of export fruit. Both cvs. tested produced high yields, but the average fruit weight of Marmande Extra was greater than that of Moneymaker.
