Vegetative growth, nutritional status and yield of tomato plants growing under salinity conditions and different NO3-:NH4+ ratios



Vegetative growth, nutritional status and yield of tomato plants growing under salinity conditions and different NO3-:NH4+ ratios



Acta Horticulturae (559): 359-364



The effect of salinity and NO3-:NH4+ ratio on vegetative growth, mineral composition and yield of tomato plants was studied in a greenhouse culture experiment. Seedlings of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. Daniela) were transferred to 120-litre tanks containing aerated modified Hoagland solution. Treatments consisted of three NO3-:NH4+ ratios (14:0, 12:2 and 10:4) combined with three salinity levels (0, 30 and 60 mM NaCl).
