The effects of various night temperature regimes on the vegetative growth and fruit production of tomato plants



The effects of various night temperature regimes on the vegetative growth and fruit production of tomato plants



Scientia Horticulturae 27(1-2): 9-14



The fruit production of tomato cultivar 'Moneymaker' was not reduced by interruption of the optimal night-temperature regime by short intervals of lower temperature. The same treatment increased the yield of 'Cherry' by 82% in the comparison with a constant night temperature of 18.degree. C. The increase in yield of this cultivar was due to a larger number of fruits per plant. Interruption of the optimal night-temperature regime by a pulsing temperature regime (PTR) may be introduced as a method in the cultivation of greenhouse tomato plants for energy saving and for promotion of fruit-set in certain tomato cultivars.
