Vegetable Feeding Tips

Two important factors concerning the nutrient solution for tomatoes are pH and (EC) electrical conductivity. It is critical that water used to mix nutrient solution for tomatoes be adjusted to a pH of 5.8-6.3. Once the correct amount of pH up or pH down solution needed to adjust ones tap water is determined by using an inexpensive pH test meter, this same amount can be used each time pH adjusted water is needed. EC measures the total dissolved solutes in the solution and gives an indication of the nutrient level. The optimal range for tomatoes is 2.0-3.5. Quality nutrient solutions will have mixing instructions that will provide the proper nutrient level. Generally best results can be had by using a quality growth formula until the plants near the flowering stage and then switching to a bloom formula.
