Suction irrigation technology for the production of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) under controlled conditions

Manuel Sebastián Peña-Casadevalls, Pável Vargas-Rodríguez

Abstract

The experimental results under controlled conditions for the determination of the suction height appropriate for the tomato cultivation variety (F1-FA572) subjected to irrigation by suction with ceramic porous capsules are presented. The suction height (h = -15 cm) was found like the most appropriate for the capsules characteristics and soil employees in the experiences. The selection criteria were the number of fruits observed. The vegetative growth of the crops (plants height), the daily water consumption and the number of fruits per plant were observed. Values approximately coincident of water consumption by the crop perspiration were found.

Keywords
