Abstract

The aim of this research was determination of influence of different substrates on some quality properties of seedling tomato (Licopersicon esculentum), hybrid Optima F1. As a control was used commercially substrate, Gramoflor Profi 100%, and 5 combinations with it and other enhancers, such as: Т1 – Gramoflor Profi + Zeo min 2:1, Т2- Gramoflor Profi + Zeopullus 2:1, Т3- Orgalife 100% чист, Т4- Orgalife + Zeo min 2:1, Т 5- Orgalife+ Zeopullus 2:1. Seedling height, stem diameter and number of leaves were monitored. According to the obtained data for the examined property, the height of the seedling was determined as the highest average height in the treatment T1 of 19.1cm. High statistically significant differences (p <0.01) exist between T1 and T2 treatments.Based on the obtained results for the property average tree diameter from all three measurements, it was determined that the control and treatment T1 have the same average tree diameter of 3.5mm. Statistical analysis of data on this property showed highly significant differences (p <0.01) between control and treatment T1. Regarding the quality, the average number of leaves was determined to be 7.6 in the treatment T1. From the obtained data, there are statistically significant differences (p <0.05) between the control and T3, while statistically significant differences (p <0.01) there are between the control with T1, and the control with the treatment T4, also statistically significant differences (p <0.01) there is between T2 and T1, treatment T2 with T3 and between T2 and T4.
