The effects of the circulation cycle of the nutrient solution on plant growth and development of cherry tomato


, : The effects of the circulation cycle of the nutrient solution on plant growth and development of cherry tomato. Kagawa Daigaku Nogakubu Gakuzyutu Hokoku = Technical Bulletin of the Faculty of Agriculture, Kagawa University 43(1): 23-30

The development of the first 4 trusses was investigated in cherry tomato cultivars Pico and Yellow Pico grown in hydroponics with circulation of the nutrient solution for 1, 2, 5 or 10 minutes during each h. Yield/truss, total yield, stem diameter, numbers of flowers, and fruits and proportion of fruits weighing >15 g increased with increased circulation time. The yield increase was greater for the 3rd and 4th trusses than for the 1st and 2nd trusses.
