Some aspects of the nutrition of tomatoes grown in recirculating solution

Some aspects of the nutrition of tomatoes grown in recirculating solution

A series of tomato experiments collectively covered the ranges 10-320 p.p.m. N and 20-375 p.p.m. K. Varying proportions of ammonium-N (25%, 10% and 0) were included in order to assess the potential for pH control. High (275 p.p.m.) N including 25% NH4-N had little effect at first but ultimately reduced yield, fruit size and root growth, probably because of excess ammonium-N and acidity.

The Fe/Mo and Fe/Mn interactions on dry matter production were more pronounced than the Mn/Mo...

Nutrient solution recirculation is often used to improve the use efficiency of mineral nutrients and reduce the contamination of soils and groundwater outside the greenhouse. However, several ions may accumulate in the nutrient solution when recyc...

In trials with tomatoes grown during spring and summer in recirculating nutrient solution, fruit yields were higher when 61-day-old rather than 49-day-old seedlings were used. In a trial with 5 cultivars, yields ranged from 6.4 to 7.2 kg/plant. Yi...
