Title:
Effects of calcium-gluconate concentrations on growth and fruit quality of the hydroponically grown tomato, 'Supermomotaro'
Publication date:
2010
Summary:
This experiment investigated the effects of calcium-gluconate (Ca-glu) concentrations on growth and fruit quality of hydroponically grown tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum), cv 'Supennomotaro'. Ca-glu concentrations were added to Yamazaki's tomato solution at 0 (control), 0.3, 0.6, or 0.9 me' L-1. trom planting through harvest time. Ca-glu treatments did not affect plant height. The soluble solid content of fruit was not different among the treatments, but glucose concentration was increased by the 0.9 me' L-1 Ca-glu treatment. Fruit firmness was not affected by the Ca-glu treatments. Total fruit weight and average fruit weight decreased with high Ca-glu treatments. Fruit Ca, K, and Mg concentrations increased with the addition of Ca-glu. The lycopene content was the highest in 0.6 me' L-1 Ca-glu treatment.
