Effect of nitrogen and spacing on leaf-nitrogen status and chlorophyll content in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.)

Annals of Agricultural Research 18(1): 108-110

Effect of nitrogen and spacing on leaf-nitrogen status and chlorophyll content in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.)

The effects of N (0, 60, 90 or 120 kg/ha) and spacing (60 x 60, 60 x 45, 60 x 30 and 30 x 30 cm) on the concentrations of N and chlorophyll in tomato (cv. Pant Bahar) leaves were investigated for plants growing in Pantnagar, India, during 1985-86. N and chlorophyll contents increased with increasing rates of N at all 3 developmental stages investigated (preflowering, flowering and fruit ripening stages).
