Abstract

The study determined the effect of water stress on yield and quality of field grown tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum cv. Mona F1) irrigated by a drip irrigation system and evaluated its water use efficiency. The amount of irrigation water applied was based on cumulative evaporation from a Class-A pan. Changes in fruit quality were determined by applying drip irrigation at different levels on Mona F1 tomatoes grown at the Irrigated Agriculture Research Center, Canakkale University, in Canakkale, Turkey in 2002 and 2003.
