Extending Harvest Duration in Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) with a Combination of Varieties, Row Spacings and Planting Systems
A field experiment with 4 row spacings (60, 80, 100 and 120 cm) and 3 planting (Sole Krish, Sole Shivalika and Mixed) systems on tomato cv. Krish (Indeterminate) and Shivalika (Determinate) were laid out in Randomized Block Design (Factorial) with three replications. The results revealed that the 60 cm spacing and (50 % Krish + 50 % Shivalika) planting system in individual and interaction responded better with respect to fruit yield per unit area, harvest duration and economic returns due to greater crop biomass productions.
Greenhouse growers are now receiving unrooted cuttings from suppliers as the spring season begins to ramp up. What are the best management practices when receiving unrooted cuttings? How do growers evaluate their quality and determine which ones should be stuck first?

Producing asparagus crowns for sale or use is simple and profitable. Careful attention to details described here is important so that all requirements for certified plant production can be met. Certified plants are most saleable and bring a premium price. One-year-old crowns will produce a healthy asparagus planting.
Modern orchards are being developed with small (dwarf) trees at close spacing. The proper distance for setting the trees varies with the variety selected and the fertility and water-holding capacity of the soil.

High value vegetable crops such as eggplant, heirloom tomato, and triploid watermelon are grafted to increase vigor, yield, tolerance to salinity and temperature extremes, and disease resistance. Commercial production and demand for grafted vegetable plants continues to increase across Asia and Europe, and has begun to expand to North America.
