Effect of in-row plant spacing and levels of nitrogen fertilizer on yield and quality of direct-seeded tomatoes



Effect of in-row plant spacing and levels of nitrogen fertilizer on yield and quality of direct-seeded tomatoes



Acta Horticulturae (190): 459-465



The Strain B2, direct-sown in the field over 2 seasons at in-row spacings of 20, 40 or 60 cm with ridges 120 cm apart, received N at 43, 86 or 129 kg/ha as urea. The plants did not respond to N but reducing the in-row spacing from 60 to 40 cm resulted in a total yield increase of 24% in the first season and of 38% in the second season. A reduction in spacing from 60 to 20 cm resulted in a total yield increase of 43% in the first season and of 75% in the second season.
