The production of organic tomatoes has significantly grown in recent years, with production increasing by 50% from 2011 to 2015. By 2016, acres grown of organic tomatoes reached a record high with 12,400 acres cultivated for production.
To successfully grow tomatoes, the key nutrients for production include nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Deficiencies in these nutrients results in a loss of crop quality and a reduction in overall yield. Utilize a complete crop nutrition program to maximize crop quality and yield at harvest.
