The effects of two drip irrigation rates and two emitter placements on tomato production

The effects of two drip irrigation rates and two emitter placements (surface and subsurface) on the production of tomatoes were investigated in the U.S. Virgin Islands. There was significant (P<O.05) difference in yields between irrigation rates but none with emitter placements. Using tomato variety N-69, marketable production of 45 tons/ha was obtained from the treatment which was irrigated at the weekly rate of 5.5 mm while marketable production of 55 tons/ha was obtained from the treatment supplying 10.4 mm water per week. The relationship of production to rainfall and potential evapotranspiration is discussed.
