Title: Crop rotations and cover crop effects on processing tomato yield, soil erosion and soil properties southwestern Ontario
Author: Johnston, R. W.
Abstract: This project was initiated to provide practical information to farmers on what crop sequence could give sustained high yields and maintain soil productivity. The objectives of this project were as follows: To study the effects of nine crop rotations on: (a) Tomato yields and quality. (b) Physical and chemical soil properties. (c) Wind and water erosion control (visual). (d) Economics of tomato production in rotation. (e) Pest management problems (insects, diseases and weeds). (f) Nutrient content of tomato plant leaves. (g) Role of forages in vegetable crop production. (h) Role of carry over nitrogen in vegetable production. The objectives of a companion trial with five cover crops was to evaluate their effects on: (a) Tomato yield and quality (b) Alleopathy to succeeding crops. (c) Wind erosion control (visual).
