The effects of two drip irrigation rates and two emitter placements on tomato production
Navarro, A. | Newman, J.
The effects of two drip irrigation rates and two emitter placements (surface and subsurface) on the production of tomatoes were investigated in the U.S. Virgin Islands. There was significant (P<O.05) difference in yields between irrigation rates but none with emitter placements. Using tomato variety N-69, marketable production of 45 tons/ha was obtained from the treatment which was irrigated at the weekly rate of 5.5 mm while marketable production of 55 tons/ha was obtained from the treatment supplying 10.4 mm water per week. The relationship of production to rainfall and potential evapotranspiration is discussed.Show more [+] Less [-]
