A comparison of the early growth and nitrogen uptake of tomatoes in peat and bark based composts


, : A comparison of the early growth and nitrogen uptake of tomatoes in peat and bark based composts. Acta Horticulturae (82): 23-30

The early growth of pot-grown tomatoes was compared in media of 3:1 peat/coarse sand with base fertilizer and 3:1 bark/coarse sand with base fertilizer, at 2 levels of liquid feeding (once and twice weekly applications of 200 p.p.m. N and 200 p.p.m. K2O). In the bark-based medium, visually assessed vigour of growth, shoot height, shoot fresh weight and shoot dry weight were significantly depressed compared with those in a peat-based medium.

The experiment was carried out on male Wistar rats. After an i.p. injection of 200 mg of pCPA/kg body wt, stimulation of lymph papulae was noted. Lymphocytes forming there grouped themselves around the papulae on the site of the lymph nodes. Injec...
