The Effect of Different Soil Regulators on Quality Tomatoes
Soil structure are very important factor at plant growing. Plants take water and plant nutrients via their roots. If the factors such as water holding capacity and porosity of soil is good enough, yield and quality of plant will be increased. Tomato is valuable plant both for the fresh fruit market and the processed food industries. It is grown in a wide range of climates in the field and under protection.The aim of this research is to determine the effect of different soil regulators (zeolite, peat, Terra Cottem, organik fertilizer) on tomato quality. They were mixed into the soil before planting. At the end of the research, while organic fertilizer has the highest value in terms of fruit weight and fruit diameter, control treatment has the highest value at fruit lenght. According to the results, organic fertilizer is able to be mixed into soil for much better fruit quality.
