Planting tomato

Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) is one of the most important vegetables worldwide.

Before planting, the soil is fertilized by applying organic matter. Tomato is usually given a combination of organic and chemical fertilizers.

Tomato seeds are generally planted indoors and nurtured until they reach a certain stage. Smaller quantities of seed are needed, the seedlings can be selected for growth and death before planting in the field, the plantlets can be well protected and the planting distance is more regular than after sowing directly in the field.

When the seedlings are approximately six inches in height, they are ready to be planted outdoors.

Add one cups each of kelp meal and bone meal into every planting hole before transplant the tomato seedlings.

It is important to water the plants regularly, especially during flowering and fruit formation. The amount of water that is needed depends on the type of soil and on the weather (amount of rain, humidity and temperature).

If the tomato seedlings have developed tall and leggy stems, it can be supported with trench planting.
