The Effects Of Different Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium Fertilizer Application On Tomato Seed Properties
Published 1993 · Chemistry
Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium were applied to L. esculentum Mill cv Rio Grande processing tomato in an experiment with five replications. The two nutrients, except the varying one were kept constant. The experiment was carried out under field conditions and thousand seed wt, germination rates and germination vigor of seeds were determined at the maturity stage. The highest N, P and K rates have resulted in the lowest values for all the properties, except thousand seed wt for K and N. Based on the LSD test, only the highest dose of each three nutrient was significantly different from the others for germination vigor. The means of doses vary significantly for the germination rate.
