Yield Components of Determinate Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) cultivars


Pages: 169-174


Field experiments with five determinate tomato hybrid cultivars (Balca, Sultan, Reword, Dublet and Serdika) were carried out on two locations (Imotski and Trogir) in 1996 and 1998. There was one planting date in Imotski, May 27, and two planting dates in Trogir, May 13 and July 12 within both years of investigation. Growing technology on black PE-mulch with drip irrigation was applied. Experiments were established by completely randomised block with three replicates. Weight, height and diameter of the fruits, total yield and also physiological disorders were determinated during harvesting.
The earliest was cv. Balca (61 day), cv. Reword had the highest yield (100.8 t/ha) while the highest average fruit weight (148.7 g) was noted with cv. Dublet during both years of research. All cultivars average fruit weight was higher but not total yield using summer planting.
