Fresh-market tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) cvs. Sunny and Sunbeam were grown in bare soil (BS), Horto paper (HP), black polyethylene (BP), hairy vetch (HV), crimson clover (CC), and hairy vetch plus rye (HVR) mulches. Yields were highest in HV (85.8 t·ha–1), followed by HVR 69.3 t·ha–1) and CC (65.7 t·ha–1), and averaged 47% above BP for the 3-year period. A 5- to 9-day earliness was exhibited by BP over other treatments. Fruit weight was significantly higher in all three organic mulch treatments than in the other three treatments. Mulch biomass was highest in HVR (5.91 t·ha–1), whereas N fixation was highest in HV (188 kg·ha–1). Tomato harvest was extended by the HV treatment over the BP treatment by 3 to 4 weeks, during which tomato prices were higher than those in early or mid-season.

) evaluated five traits including fresh pod weight in 23 edamame cultivars from MG III to VII in Mississippi. Mebrahtu and Mohamed (2006) analyzed genetic variation for green pod yield and quality in 31 vegetable soybean genotypes from MG III to VI. More

/or decreasing spacing may increase yield of purple basil per unit area. Although ‘Aromatto’ had high fresh weight, we believe this may be attributed to excessive stem growth, not foliage production. Hydroponic basil producers may want to select basil cultivars

growing degree days calculated with a base temperature of 8 °C. where DWear is the ear dry weight (grams per plant). Using the plant population density and FWear , the model calculates total fresh weight yield of ears [ TotFW (kilograms

fresh and dry weight yields of TC ‘Okinawan’ were almost twice those of C ‘Okinawan’. Fig. 1. Fresh weight yield of storage roots of ‘Okinawan’ sweetpotato grown from tissue-cultured, virus-tested (TC) planting materials and those grown from commercial

measurements of fruit weight (fresh or dry); with nondestructive measurements, intermediate equations are needed to convert fruit dimensions into fruit fresh or dry weight (e.g., Cuevas et al., 2003 ; De Silva et al., 1997 ; Marcelis, 1992 ; Marcelis and

from twice a day to once a day either maintained or enhanced essential oil yield per plant. Such a result was probably the result of a tendency of essential oil content (percent oil on herbage fresh weight basis) to increase with a decrease in

more rainfall than in 2017, but irrigation had no significant impact on yield over two growing seasons ( Table 2 ). Total fresh weight, dry weight, and marketable yields were statistically similar ( Table 2 ), indicating that tigernut does not require

. Dry weight yields were calculated by multiplying fresh weight yields by percent dry matter. Starting during the fifth planting date, data on corm rots were taken, in which the rotten portion of corms was excised, weighed, and the percentage corm rot

). Fruit cluster pruning of tomatoes has been shown to influence total yield, marketability, individual fruit fresh weight, and various indicators of quality, such as dry matter and SSC. Fruit cluster pruning is used to limit the number of fruit per cluster
