THE EFFECT OF PLANT POWER APPLICATIONS ON THE YIELD OF EARLY TOMATOES

O. Gezerel
Research was carried out on Dario Hybrid tomatoes cultivated in plastic hothouses. Young plants were transplanted in plastic bags to soil that had received 200 kg N per ha as ammonium nitrate. The plants were separated into two blocks, 0.1 % Plant Power solution (containing 0.3 % Zn and Cu) was sprayed onto the plants when they had formed two leaves. After transplanting (i.e. when the plants had reached a height of 10 cm) a second application of 0.5 % Plant Power was made. The application of Plant Power was found to significantly increase yield and fruit weight.
