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 those who are used to using twine to make a tomato trellis or gardeners who use tomato cages or tomato stakes for individual plants.

This innovative method is an alternative to using HORTOMALLAS® for a vertical tomato trellis. This achieves considerable savings in labor since it allows solanaceae to grow on the netting that is placed horizontally. The branches come to rest on the netting WITHOUT the need of tying or fasteners!

On the University of Caldas (Mexico) College of Agronomy’s Montelindo farm, located in the municipality of Palestina, research was done 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 selected taking into account agronomic characteristics such as disease resistance, plant vigor, plant uniformity, type of maturity, growth type, and uniformity of the fruit. The primary objective consisted of finding the best yielding varieties that were best adapted to the conditions of the region, as well as the most suitable method for growing tomatoes.

El objetivo primordial consistió en encontrar las variedades de mejores rendimientos y que se adaptaran mejor a las condiciones de la región para el cultivo del tomate en malla espaldera.

The statistical design was that of randomly assigned plots with 4 repetitions and 7 test samples. The Roma variety was 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, it is not recommended due to its low market acceptance.
In addition, it was observed that the best method for supporting tomato plants is that of trellising with wire (or netting) given that is better ventilated this way and receives more direct sunlight. Since more productive branches can be left on the vine, yield is greater.
