A study comparing seven varieties of tomatoes and two methods of supporting tomatoes without using individual tomato cages

A study comparing seven varieties of tomatoes and two methods of supporting tomatoes without using individual tomato cages

Trellis netting rather than tomato cages for supporting tomato plants

This study compares varieties of tomatoes and the use of HORTOMALLAS® tomato trellis netting for supporting the plants. This should be interesting for who use twine to make a tomato trellis or use tomato cages or stakes.

HORTOMALLAS® tutoring mesh
This innovative method is an alternative to using HORTOMALLAS® for a vertical tomato trellis this achieves considerable savings in labor.

On the University of Caldas (Mexico) College of Agronomy’s Montelindo farm, located in the municipality of Palestina, research consisting of the comparison of 7 varieties of tomatoes. San Marzano, Roma, Supreme Marglobe, Common Marglobe, Manalucie F.M., Manalucie D.S., and Manapal.

The varieties were select by the agronomic characteristics such as disease resistance, vigor, uniformity, type of maturity, growth and uniformity of the fruit.

The primary objective consist of finding the best yielding varieties that were best adapt to the conditions of the region.

supporting tomato
The primary objective was to find the varieties with the best yields and best adapted to the conditions of the region for tomato cultivation on trellises.

The statistical design was that of randomly assigned plots with 4 repetitions and 7 test samples. The Roma variety found to have the best yields. Nevertheless, the Supreme Marglobe variety, although more susceptible to diseases. Was the one with the best morphological traits as well as being one of the better yielders. Therefore, it would be the most appropriate variety for the zone. In spite of the fact that the Roma variety is a better yielder, is not recommend due to its low market acceptance.

The best method for supporting tomato plants is the trellising with wire (or netting) giving good ventilation and receive sunlight. Since more productive branches can left on the vine, yield is greater.
