Effect of mulch color on yield of fresh-market tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum)



Effect of mulch color on yield of fresh-market tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum)



Acta Horticulturae ( 357): 243-250



A 2 yr field experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of mulch colour on early and total yield of fresh-market tomatoes. Treatments consisted of: no mulch (control), clear polyethylene, black polyethylene and white/black polyethylene mulch films. The mulches were 80 cm wide and 40 microns thick. Six-week-old seedlings of the determinate cultivars 'Triuque' (INTA) and 'ACE 55' (Petoseed) were transplanted in the third week of September.
