MINAMI, Keigo; LUCCHESI, Antonio Augusto and VICTORIA FILHO, Ricardo. Effects of environment on quality of tomato transplanting plants. An. Esc. Super. Agric. Luiz de Queiroz [online]. 1981, vol.38, n.1, pp. 113-120. ISSN 0071-1276. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0071-12761981000100010.
In order to study the effects of shading and unshading combined with N fertilizing on tomato transplanting plants, an experiment in greenhouse conditions was carried on. It was concluded that N is important to produce healthy and strong plants. Under shading plus N fertilization, plants are taller and have high nitrate contents, while under unshading plus N fertilization, plants have higher diameter and more developed root system.
