Calcium and potassium-enhanced growth and yield of tomato under sodium chloride stress

The effects of salinization of nutrient solutions with NaCl, Ca(NO3)2 and KNO3 on designated root, leaf and yield parameters of 5 tomato cultivars were investigated underneath greenhouse condition. Results of the study showed that addition of fifty millimetre NaCl to nutrient answer considerably reduced root volume and contemporary weight, atomic number 20 and K concentrations, leaf range and contemporary weight, furthermore as fruit yield. [1]

Interactive effects of salinity and nitrogen on growth and yield of tomato plants

Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum power unit. VF 145) plants were mature with emblematic Xerofluvents soil during a greenhouse irrigated with recycled nutrient solutions having increasing levels of N and salinity. Positive response of plants to increasing levels of N was obtained at very cheap initial salinity level of one dS/m (dS/m=mmho/cm, documented at 25°C). At the upper initial salinity levels of five and nine dS/m, increasing N was ineffective in counteracting adverse effects on growth and yield caused by the presence of increased salt concentrations of the nutrient resolution.

Effect of Compost Amendments on Disease Severity and Yield of Tomato in Conventional and Organic Production Systems

Field trials were conducted over a pair of years to assess the consequences of compost amendments on malady development in organic and standard process tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L.) production systems. The incidence of anthracnose fruit rot was reduced in organic tomato plots amended with a high rate of composted mill wastes compared with the incidence in nonamended management plots in 1998 once malady incidence was high. Marketable yield was multiplied by thirty third in compost-amended organic plots. [3]

Effects of Different Water-regimes on the Growth of Tomatoes under Glass

THE relationship between the expansion of nursery crop plants and also the level of their water provides remains unsure. so as to research potential effects of soil wetness on the speed of growth and yield of tomatoes (varieties of genus Lycopersicum esculentum Mill.) beneath glass, tomato plants are subjected to four totally different water-regimes for  [4]

Influence of Mulching on Growth and Yield of Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) under Protected Environment

Aims: to see the result of assorted mulches on growth and yield of tomato and to figure out the economic science of cultivation underneath protected atmosphere.

Study style: irregular Block Design with 3 replications.

Place and period of Study: analysis farm, Department of Vegetable Science and horticulture, CSK HPKV, Palampur throughout 2016 and 2016-17. [5]
