Transplanting versus direct-seeding of processing tomatoes for once-over harvest

Transplanting versus direct-seeding of processing tomatoes for once-over harvest

Arkansas Farm Research 24(5): 11

In a trial with 30 tomato cvs and selections the effects were compared of direct seeding at 2 plant clumps/row ft and transplanting in peat cups, the seeded plants being sprayed with ethephon at 0 or 480 p.p.m. 10 days before harvest. Data are presented on the yields of fruit in various categories and on the average weight, firmness and picking date of canning-ripe fruit. Inter-cv. differences in relation to method of planting were not consistent.
