Influence of Substrate on Germination and Fruiting of Tomatoes
Journal of Agriculture and Ecology Research International,
The production of tomatoes from seedlings is safer, fruiting and harvesting occur earlier, and due to the more uniform distribution of plants in the field, the fruits formed are larger and more uniform. Various substrates from own production and substrates from industrial production are used for cultivation.
The research was conducted in a greenhouse, at the location of Gornji Lukavac, Gradačac.
The aim of this study was to determine the influence of different substrates on germination, vegetative growth and yield of tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum).
For the purposes of this research, four nutrient substrates were used: Potgrond H, own compost, sand-soil mixture in a ratio of 1: 1, and lumbri humus.
The research was conducted during 2021.
The seeds first germinated in the soil substrate: sand (1: 1), the best marketable fruits were on lumbra humus.
- marketable tomato fruits
