The use of coconut potting mix in the soilless cultivation of tomatoes






Acta Horticulturae ( 292): 155-160

The use of coconut potting mix in the soilless cultivation of tomatoes

Growth and productivity of tomato Counter were studied when grown in bags containing different volumes (4, 6, 8 and 12 litres) of a coconut potting mixture (cocomix), which consisted of shredded coconut husk + sand. There were 2 plants/bag grown in a plastic greenhouse with a drip irrigation system. Leaf, stem and root DW did not differ between treatments.
