ABSTRACT
This study was conducted during winter season of 2004/2005 at Al -- Burjesieh Exp. Res. Sta., Nati. Proj. of Tomato Culture and Production. The aim was to study the effect of methods of planting (a. Direct sowing at the permanent field using 60 seed.hole-1 "as the farmer of the region use" b. direct seeding at the permanent field using 30 seed.hole-1 c. using transplants) on the vegetative growth, flowering and yield of tomato plants cv. "Super Marmande". Results showed that the direct sowing at the permanent field using 60 seed.hole-1 gave a significant increases at plant height, fruit dry matter percentage and ascorbic acid comparing with other methods, protein content comparing with sowing 30 seed.hole-1 and total yield plant-1, early and total yield per donum which were 2.270kg and 1.281 and 10.774 ton respectively comparing with transplants method. Sowing 30 seed.hole-1 method gave a significant increase in lateral branch and inflorescence number and leaf dry matter percentage, as well as plant yield, yearly and total yield which were 2.490kg, 1.996 and 11.814 ton.donum-1 respectively comparing with other methods, plant height, fruit dry matter percentage and ascorbic acid comparing with transplants method, whereas transplants method gave a significant increase in carbohydrates and protein content comparing with the other methods and lateral branches comparing with 60 seed.hole-1" as the farmer of the region use.
