Bombardier in industrial tomato, varieties H1015 and H2401

Over 250 trials on 120 different crops from over 90 countries.


Industrial tomato, varieties H1015 and H2401

Sevilla, Spain

The application of BOMBARDIER in industrial tomatoes of the varieties H1015 and H2401 caused an increase in productivity of 17% and 16% or 18,144 and 17,109 kg/ha, respectively. This increase is due to the fact that tomato plants treated with BOMBARDIER had greater vigor (Fig. 2) and greater number of active leafs, making process of photosynthesis (manufacture of sugar and biomass) longer and more intense, thus obtaining greater production of sugars in fruits.
