Processing Tomato Cultivar Trials Research Report 1996
This report summarizes the results of the processing tomato variety trials during the 1996 season. The main emphasis of this work has been to identify and recommend processing tomato cultivars suited for wholepack use in Ontario. The trials were conducted on a variety of soil types, and in a number of different growing areas in order to provide information on adaptability of cultivars over the entire growing area, as well as to provide some information as to which varieties may be best suited for specific tomato production areas in Ontario. As usual this work takes a two-pronged approach to cultivar evaluation by looking at both field performance and processing performance in order to provide a more complete picture of a cultivar’s suitability for the industry.
