The effects of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium on the canning quality of tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum) in south-western Nigeria


, : The effects of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium on the canning quality of tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum) in south-western Nigeria. Acta Horticulturae (53): 171-180

In studies with 3 tomato cvs N, P and/or K were applied at low, optimum (N 40-60 kg/ha, P2O5 60 kg/ha and K2O 30-60 kg/ha) or high rates. Fruit total solids content increased at low-optimum P rates but decreased at high P rates. N and K at any rate had no effect on the total solids content. NPK at optimum rates increased titratable acidity, reducing sugars and ascorbic acid contents but decreased them at high rates.

Mebendazole was given in the food at 30 p.p.m. In 6 pigs infected with Trichuris, treated for 5 days, the egg output in the faeces was reduced by 76%; in 6 pigs treated for 10 days, it was reduced by 99.9%. In 6 pigs infected with Strongyloides tr...
