I have a question. Pls how can i use raise bed for nursery.
after you do the raise bed, use piece Baboo to make line,put your seed one one, cover it with light sand,then cover it with mosquito net.if not because of coro madness I will have suggest you use cocopeat and nursery tray.

@Farmerakinloye6

Beautiful job you are doing there sir. cool

Do you mind sharing the tomato variety used so I can interpolate with the picture posted and your staking choice.

God bless.
platlium 701 f1.some are 90cm interval why some are 120cm.

Oh Platinum F1. Good one; High resistant variety to damping off disease.

Hr: ToMV, Vd
Ir: BW, TYLCV
Maturity: 60 - 70 days

Type: Roma small determinate

Fruit weight: 70 - 80 grams

I'm really interested in your staking methods. From the picture uploaded, are you sure those trellis would hold? (Well, the platinum fruits ain't that big though so I guess your method might just pull through).

I have other suggestions you could employ by the way.

I was going to just spill it immediately I saw it but this is nairaland agro section ooo (I thread carefully now cry ). Moreover, I did face a similar challenge with my platinum F1 & Rodeo pilots where some plants stand grew so tall; (most over 5 feet), I could have sworn that it is Semi-determinate . We had to employ both horizontal and vertical staking.

Why dont you apply more potassium based fertilizers during their fruiting. You can get more than 3kg per plant.

Great job you are doing here. I prayed may the Lord crown your efforts with favour beyond your labour.
Pls, how do you wet (watery) your seedlings in the nursery trays? Have heard people saying you have to break seed dormancy. Pls kindly explain how you soak seed before planting.
Thanks.
