Valorization of Compost Obtained from Cattle Manure in Culture of Tomatoes

Gheorghina Preda, Benoni Lixandru, Dumitru Popescu

Abstract


It has been researched the effect of fertilizer on tomato production of two versions of compost obtained from aerobe fermenting of cattle manure on cellulosic support derived from minced sunflower strains and triticale straws. The tomato production is not influenced by the type of compost, but organic type fertilization ensures an up to 24-34 % greater production, proportional with the level of fertilization of 30 t/ha or 50 t/ha. The lycopene content from ripe tomatoes was significantly greater for both organic fertilization versions (p ≤ 0.01 at a level of 30 t of compost / ha and p ≤ 0.001 at a level of 50 t of compost / ha).
