Tomato cracking symptoms and prevention

Symptoms When the tomato matures, there are radial cracks near the fruit pedicle, which are radioactive cracks; concentric cracks appear in the shoulders of the fruit, which are concentric and dehiscent. Many cracks are the mixed cracks that occur at the same time for both cracking phenomena. In terms of cultivation type, tomatoes grown in open field in the summer and tomatoes in the plastic film greenhouse in autumn have more cracks.

Prevention methods Prevention of cracking of fruit is mainly to prevent the aging of the peel, and the sharp increase in soil moisture content.

Pericarp aging is caused by direct sunlight on the skin. The leaves of the tomato after fruit setting can protect the fruit from the sun. If the sunlight is strong, newspapers can also be used to make the paper sleeves in the inflorescence. If there is a large blade above the fruit to cover the fruit, the disease prevention effect is better.

Low levels of calcium and boron in the soil can also cause skin aging. The calcium and potassium fertilizers should be fully supplied and the plants should be well absorbed. In the dry condition, the tomato plant's ability to absorb calcium deteriorates, and in the case of multiple fertilizers and potassium, the absorption of calcium can also be affected. Pay attention to the deep plowing of the soil and the application of an appropriate amount of basal fertilizer so that the roots can grow fully and absorb nutrients and moisture well.

Pay attention to reasonable irrigation and avoid drastic increase in water content in soil after drought. It is also important to avoid direct contact between rain and fruit surfaces. Strengthen soil management so that the root can extend deep.
