Abstract

Methods of training plants of tomato, Lycopersicon esculentum, Mill. (staked vs. unstaked, or pruned vs. unpruned) or growing under conditions of reduced light or moisture did not alter acid content of fruit sufficiently to cause concern with botulism poisoning from the canned product.

Nursery-sown seedlings of Telfairia occidentalis were transplanted to the field plots of the National Horticultural Research Inst. in May 1998 and 1999. The treatment involved sowing using three population densities of 75,000; 45,000, and 30,000 plants/ha, which translates to 50 × 50-cm; 100 × 50-cm and 100 × 100-cm spacing. The second experiment involved sowing at 1 × 1-m spacing and one, two, four, zero, eight, and 12 harvests with staking vs. non-staking of vine methods. The studies were of a completely randomized block design using four replications. The results showed that most of the vegetation plant characters measured in the study on one hand were favored by 75,000 plants/ha, while, on the other hand, the highest fruit production occurred in 45,000 plants/ha. Harvesting eight to 12 times gave similar, but significantly higher,vegetative yield than the other lower frequencies. Nevertheless, fruit production in number and weight was superior in plants given the minimum (one or two) pruning. There were no significant differences in the measured plant characters of plants that were staked compared to the non-staked plants. However, fruit yield was better in staked than non-staked plants.
