The effect of the pricking out density of seedlings on the yield, earliness and quality of some tomato cultivars for early field production



The effect of the pricking out density of seedlings on the yield, earliness and quality of some tomato cultivars for early field production



Gradinarska i Lozarska Nauka 12(2): 63-71



In 3 years' seedling production trials with the cvs Triumph and Pioneer 2, some 8 pricking out spacings were compared. The closer spacings reduced seedling size and delayed inflorescence formation compared with the wider spacings. After planting out in the field, plants from the closer spaced seedlings started to crop later and produced substantially lower yields, but the proportion of standard produce was similar.
