We examined the effects of fertilizer application, especially the effects of fertigation and types of fertilizer (inorganic and organic) on yields and δ15N and δ13C values of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cv. Saturn). Fertigation is a method in which an appropriate diluted liquid fertilizer is applied to the plants each time they are drip-irrigated. We developed a method of organic fertigation using corn steep liquor (CSL) as the liquid fertilizer, because it is an industrial byproduct… CONTINUE READING
