A photoprograming controlled drip irrigation system and its effect on the yield of tomato crop grown on perlite substrate

Acta Horticulturae ( 449): 355-358
A photoprograming controlled drip irrigation system and its effect on the yield of tomato crop grown on perlite substrate
Tomato Alexander plants were grown in a hydroponic system using plastic bags filled with perlite as growing medium. Half of the plants were irrigated with a drip system controlled by a photoprogramming timer. The other half were irrigated using a drip system controlled by a simple timer, adjusted by the grower each week.
