Tomato growth and yield in unheated plastic greenhouses in a Mediterranean climate



Tomato growth and yield in unheated plastic greenhouses in a Mediterranean climate



Agricoltura Mediterranea 120(1): 31-40



Tomatoes cultivated in greenhouses in Almeria, on a soil with an artificially modified profile, were studied for 3 years. About 1300 g/msuperscript 2 of above-ground biomass was produced, with an average daily crop growth rate of 6.5 g/msuperscript 2, i.e. well below reported values for controlled-climate greenhouses. Fresh fruit yields were between 8000 and 9000 g/msuperscript 2 during a 3-month harvest period.
