Title: Farm-Scale Processing Tomato Production Using Surface and Subsurface Drip Irrigation and Fertigation
Author: Tan, C.S.; Zhang, T.Q.; Reynolds, W.D.; Warner, J.; Drury, C.F.
Abstract: Processing tomatoes were grown on two commercial fields: one comprising 16 acres on the loamy sand and the other comprising about 5 acres on the clay loam soil. The objectives of the study were to determine the effects of surface and subsurface drip irrigation and fertigation on yield, quality, water and nutrient use efficacy of processing tomatoes on commercial scale. The treatments included the non-irrigated control plots with broadcast fertilizer and surface and subsurface drip irrigated plots, both with broadcast fertilizer and fertigation.
