Abstract


Tomatoes are used in people diet, fresh or in different dishes (soups, sauces, pots, stuffed tomatoes, etc.). They are recommended as food for people suffering of asthenia, loss of appetite, chronic poisoning, congestive states, atherosclerosis, vascular diseases, arthritis, gout, rheumatism, azotemia, biliary and urinary lithiasis, constipation, enteritis. They are industrially used in the production of tomato paste, broth, canned, plain or spicy juice, pickled. The internal use of tomatoes results in a reduction in blood viscosity and thus reduces the risk of thrombosis and atherosclerosis as well as cardiovascular disease. In order to achieve early productions, the protected crop of tomatoes is used and cultivation with a shorter period of vegetation is used. Production time is also ensured through balanced nutrition. The experience was carried out during the year 2016, in an ecologically certified vegetable small farm in Husasau de Tinca, Bihor County. The experimental factors were cultivar and fertilization. Experimental culture was set up in a polyethylene tunnel in April.
