Effect of different irrigation schedules, substrates and substrate volumes on fruit quality and yield of greenhouse tomato



Effect of different irrigation schedules, substrates and substrate volumes on fruit quality and yield of greenhouse tomato



Acta Horticulturae (548): 285-291



This study was conducted to determine the effects of three irrigation schedules in combination with locally available substrates and different bag volumes on yield, fruit quality and water consumption of tomato Fantastic. The substrates were: (1) perlite, (2) pumice, (3) volcanic ash, (4) perlite + peat (4:1, v/v), (5) pumice + peat (4:1, v/v) and (6) volcanic ash + peat (4:1, v/v). Irrigation was carried out according to the drainage volume as (1) once, (2) twice and (3) four times a day.
