The study was conducted to determine the effects of organic and inorganic
fertilizer doses on yield and quality in processing tomato. Treatment consisted
of 0, 3, 6 and 9 t/da organic manure and also recomended rate (25:12:12 ve 3,8
kg/da Ca) and half of it inorganic fertilizer.
Organic and inorganic fertilizer significantly increased total yield, fruit diameter
and length, and average weight of tomato compare to control. The highest total
yield, fruit diameter and lenght, average weight of tomato value were obtained at 6
t/da organic manure and half of recomended rate of inorganic fertilizer. Total
solible solid was influenced significantly with all fertilizer treatment but Vitamin C
was not effected. Nitrogen (N), potassium (K), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), zinc
(Zn), copper (Cu) content increased depend on treatments.
