Abstract: Tomato cropping (Solanum lycopersicum L.) under protected cultivation using substrates and drip fertigation has improved sustainable production systems especially fruit quality and plant health. However, little is known for tomato plants when considering the interaction between substrate volume and irrigation frequency. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) fiber substrate volumes and drip irrigation frequencies on the vegetative growth and fruit yield of tomato plant… Show more

“…The higher plant height in irrigation level 4 l m -2 daily may be attributed to the higher quantity of irrigation applied throughout the crop growth period. The similar results are reported by Pires et al, (2011) where the high irrigation frequency favored the vegetative growth. Similar results are also reported by Acharya et al, (2013) and Yaghi et al, (2013).…”

“…Similarly, Pires et al (2011) and Rodriguez-Ortega et al (2016) reported that irrigation events divided into shorter intervals, grown either in cocofibres or perlite substrates, favored tomato fruit yield. In contrast, Tsirogiannis et al (2010) working with gerbera grown in pots filled with Nisyros pumice, concluded that the yield and quality characteristics (i.e.…”

“…In sweet corn, ear differentiation begins at the six-or eight-leaf stage growth when the water deficiency decreases the length of ears and the numbers of ear rows [23], but during tasselling the water deficiency causes significant yield reduction [24,25]. Tomatoes are most sensitive to water deficiency at fruit setting and intensive fruit development periods [3], when the increasing water stress resulted in a 25 to 50% decrease in the yield [10,[26][27][28][29]. During early flowering of tomatoes, water scarcity causes flower shedding and lack of fertilization [30], and during fruit setting, plants with small sized fruits are produced [10,31].…”
