The effect of root zone warming on tomatoes grown in nutrient solution at two air temperatures


Acta Horticulturae (82): 113-120
The effect of root zone warming on tomatoes grown in nutrient solution at two air temperatures
The effect of heating the nutrient solution to 25 deg C was studied on a crop of early glasshouse tomatoes, Grenadier, grown at air temperatures of 18 deg or 13 deg (night) and 20 deg (day). Solution warming gave a large increase in root size and raised the levels of minerals in the leaf but did not affect the development of early fruit or the early yield. The higher night air temperature gave heavier early yields.
