Title: Processing Tomato Management Research 1992
Author: Garton, R.W.; Balkwill, W.R.
Abstract: The information contained in this report is a summary of crop management research on processing tomatoes conducted at Harrow, Ontario, during the summer of 1992. The trials at Harrow were grown on a Fox sandy loam soil, which is representative of the soil types used for much of the processing tomato crop in this area. Details of cultural practices used are included in each trial report. Pesticide applications were made according to Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food, Publication 363 recommendations. Growing conditions for this season were very unusual. April and early May were cold and cloudy, resulting in cool soil temperatures for early crop establishment. A period of warm, sunny weather in mid-May was favorable for planting operations and early growth. Several weeks of relatively cool weather in late May and early June delayed maturity of the processing tomato crop. Throughout the remainder of the summer, temperatures were cooler than normal. May and early June were slightly dry, but during the remainder of the summer, rainfall was frequent and heavier than normal. The tomato crop was never under moisture stress during fruitset and development, and yields in the area were above average.
