Abstract

After harvesting the tomato crops, GF fertilizer presented with higher yield than the NPK conventional fertilizer, being 59,980 kg and 74,360 kg for NKP and GF, respectively. The general characteristics of the harvested tomato fruits and leaves were similar in the two cases and the differences fall within the statistical errors. No differences in any of the soil characteristics were detected because of the use of the GF.
