This research was conducted in an unheated greenhouse during autumn and spring seasons in 1998 and 1999 to compare different substrates in open and closed systems for tomato production. The tested substrates were perlite, volcanic tuff, perlite + peat (4:1, v/v) and volcanic tuff + peat (4: 1, v/v). Substrates were filled into horizontal containers as 8 litres per plant. Cultivars Gokce F-1 and FA 361 F, were grown in autumn and spring seasons, respectively.
