Abstract:
Nutrient film technique and sand culture were tested for the year round production of tomato in Bangladesh. Two cultivars of tomato viz., Egg tomato and Kingkong were tested for growth in both winter (November 2000-February 2001) and summer (May 2001-August 2001) seasons in NFT (Nutrients Film Technique) and sand culture. Sand culture was more simple to establish and manage incurved lowed cost compared to NFT system, however higher production was observed in NFT system. Egg tomato was found to be suitable for growth in summer, where as winter was suitable for Kingkong tested NFT and sand culture.
