Tomato in High Tunnel, Variety Trial

Published Nov 20, 2017

In a Nutshell

Three farms conducted replicated variety trials in high tunnels of tomato varieties: Big Beef, Rebelski, Big Dena.

Key Findings

No farm showed statistical differences in overall yield (lb/ft2) among varieties. Landgraf and Quee had statistical differences in size and number of tomatoes, with Rebelski having more and smaller fruits than Big Beef. All farms will continue to use Big Beef as a high tunnel variety, and Matteson/Schick will also continue to use Big Dena, which held its size later into the season.
