The influence of potassium, calcium and irrigation treatments on tomato fruit quality

, : The influence of potassium, calcium and irrigation treatments on tomato fruit quality. Acta Horticulturae (53): 165-170

In experiments with box-grown tomatoes, K and Ca had no effect on the soluble solids content and titratable acidity of the fruits. Irrigation every 3 days decreased soluble solids and titratable acidity compared with irrigation every 5 days.
