WATER CONSUMPTIVE USE OF GREENHOUSE TOMATOES AS RELATED TO VARIOUS LEVELS OF SOIL WATER POTENTIAL UNDER DRIP IRRIGATION.
The total quantity of the applied irrigation water during the period September-June was: 310, 340, 390 and 610 mm for the above mentioned levels respectively.
The total yields which were 13.500, 14.650, 15.000 and 14.600 Kg/1000 m2 in the above mentioned soil water pontential levels respectively were not significantly different among them.
The average fruit weight being in the range of 146 to 154 g did not show significant differences among treatments.
Examinations of the root distribution in soil profiles between two successive plants up to a depth of 60 cm did not show important differences among the treatments.
So far the best result was achieved by 0.6/0.2 level.
