The effects of plant population, irrigation frequency and cultivars on yield and canning qualities of tomato fruits grown under hot tropical conditions


Acta Horticulturae (49): 193-208
The effects of plant population, irrigation frequency and cultivars on yield and canning qualities of tomato fruits grown under hot tropical conditions
All 6 cvs studied and especially Chico and Red Top yielded well at Shambat and Karima (Sudan). Plant population had no significant effect on total yield at Shambat, but a high population (21 000/feddan = 0.42 ha) at Karima significantly outyielded the lower population (10 500 plants). Watering every week resulted in significantly larger fruits and greater total yield than watering every 2 weeks.
