Effects of different planting systems and distances on the yield and quality of greenhouse organic tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) growing
This study was firstly carried out in 2010 year to decide how various planting systems (single, double or triangular planting) and different distances (40×40, 40×50, 40×60, 40×65, 40×80) affects plants in greenhouse growing of organic tomato as out-of-season fruits. In the experiment; average fruit weight, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), dry matter content, yield plant-1 and total yield were determined. The highest average fruit weight was 276.3 g and this value was obtained in single row planting. Average fruit weight varied from 160.3 to 276.3 g. Dry matter content varied from 7.3 to 13.8% on tomato fruits. Ascorbic acid values changed in the range of 10.25 to 23.18%. The highest yield (11.91 kg m-2) was recorded in triangular planting and 40×65 cm plant spacing distance application.
