Effect of different peat substrates on the growth of tomato seedlings

Effect of different peat substrates on the growth of tomato seedlings

Rivista della Ortoflorofrutticoltura Italiana 70(3): 165-170

Commercial peat substrates from Germany, the Netherlands, Yugoslavia and Italy were compared with a 1:1 white peat-silt mixture with the pH adjusted with marble dust. Data on the physical and chemical compositions of the substrates are tabulated. Tomato seedlings Samar F1 were transplanted after cotyledon expansion and were or were not supplied three times per week with fertigation (20-20-20 at 1.5 g/litre).
