Roots system pruning ratios and their effects on vegetative growth characteristics produced by tomato plants during three vegetative growth periods



Roots system pruning ratios and their effects on vegetative growth characteristics produced by tomato plants during three vegetative growth periods



Dirasat Agricultural Sciences 27(2): 184-189



This investigation was carried out in a randomized complete block design to find out the effect of seedling root system pruning (0, 25, 50 or 75%) on the vegetative growth characteristics of tomatoes Rio Grand grown in plastic tunnels. Plants were sampled 15, 30 and 45 days after root pruning. No significant differences were found between control plants and those with 25% of roots pruned for stem length, number of leaves, and length of the developed root system.
