While tomatoes continue to be one of the most widely grown plants, the production and distribution of tomato fruits have been changing worldwide. Smaller, flavorful tomatoes are becoming more popular than beefsteak tomatoes, greenhouse-grown tomatoes have entered the marketplace, and home gardeners are using the Internet to obtain information for growing tomatoes. Encompassing these changes, Tomato Plant Culture: In the Field, Greenhouse, and Home Garden, Second Edition clearly presents the characteristics, nutritional information, environmental requirements, and production aspects of tomato plants and fruits.

Authored by one of the foremost experts in hydroponics, the book outlines the history of the tomato plant and fruit and delves into the author's personal experiences with tomato plant cultivation. It discusses the characteristics and composition of the plant as well as seedling and seed production. The author elucidates the physical features of the fruit and the mineral nutrition of the plant. He also examines the physical and chemical characteristics of soils most desirable for plant growth, makes fertilizer recommendations, and explores the factors involved in greenhouse tomato production. In addition, the book looks at ways to identify and control plant diseases and insect pests.

With scientific data, trivia, and troubleshooting advice, this technical yet accessible book enables scientists, commercial growers, and home gardeners to cultivate a successful crop of tomatoes.

Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars  1 review
5.0 out of 5 stars Though very academic, a must have for serious tomato growers 3 Oct 2012
By W. Bradford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
If you're a serious tomato grower (and I mean commercially, not back yard) then you need to consider saving your money to buy this book. Though expensive, it should form the backbone of your reference library. I can see this used as an academic text in an college course, but don't let that scare you off. The information held within is priceless and crucial. I reference it several times a year. I highly recommend it.
