Effectiveness of Growth-regulator Energy-M By Seedlings of Tomatoes in Strict Arid Conditions of the Low Volga Region


The complicated conditions of the modern period of intensification of agricultural production cause the necessity in the development of new technologies adapted to current conditions of land use. Thereby we have developed the concept of “The system of technological measures for growing of vegetable cultures providing the rational effective use of material and energy resources and getting of economically profitable yields”. The paper presents the results of research on the effectiveness of growth-regulator for getting of high-quality yield of tomatoes. It was approved that the organosilicone product Energy-M stimulated plants‘ growth and development, and increased the productivity of tomatoes in strict arid conditions of the Low Volga region. The object of research was the tomato grade Hercules. The highest yields of tomatoes with the formation of big quantity of large fruits with pretty good eating characteristics were harvested when planting of the grade Hercules on the site with pre-sowing treatment of seeds and foliar nutrition of plants during the initial period of growth and the phase of budding-blossom. The application of the growth-regulator Energy-M on tomato sowings is an effective measure. The producers of high-quality vegetable production are recommended to use the said product widely when sufficient mineral nutrition by moistening of the seeds prior to sowing and by the treatment of the plants during the whole vegetation period.
