Growing tomatoes in peat substrates

, : Growing tomatoes in peat substrates. Acta Horticulturae (51): 117-121

A satisfactory technique for the production of commercial crops of glasshouse tomatoes in peat substrate has been developed in Guernsey. This major change from traditional soil growing methods was due to several factors, including the high annual cost of soil sterilization easily made peat substrates which can be used with low plant densities, reduced costs of production, and the fact that early and total yields of tomatoes obtained in peat are equal to those in soil.
