Use of greenhouse cultures accompanied by new techniques such as soilless or hydroponic culture on the one hand improves suitable control of plants nutrition and on the other hand it has created a great progress in greenhouse productions. In order to greenhouse tomato cultivar of Hamra was cultured in a hydroponic system and effect of micronutrients different levels was studied on it. The experiment design was as randomized complete block with five treatments and four replications. Experimental treatments were included: Lack of micronutrients application, Full application of sulfate manganese (4.06 mg/lit), Full application of sulfate zinc (4.42 mg/lit), 50% sulfate manganese (2.03 mg/lit) + 50% sulfate zinc (2.21 mg/lit) and Full application of sulfate manganese + Full application of sulfate zinc. The results showed that the highest fresh fruit yield, fruit dry matter percentage and content of Mn and Zn in fruit obtained from full application Mn, Zn and Mn + Zn. However micronutrients different levels had significantly effect on content of nitrogen, but they haven’t significantly effect on fruit size of tomato. Key words: Micronutrients, Tomato, Hydroponic culture, Yield.

Greenhouse Tomato Production Practices Robert G. Anderson, Extension Horticulture Specialist Tomatoes have been grown in greenhouses for nearly 100 years. For this reason, there are many techniques for growing tomatoes in a greenhouse and there is more written about greenhouse tomatoes than any other greenhouse crop. Additionally, hydroponics was developed for greenhouse tomato production, so there can be many complicated steps to the production of tomato fruit in a greenhouse. There is no single BEST way to grow greenhouse tomatoes; many ways are successful. An individual grower must experience tomato production, in order to determine the best and economic techniques in his or her greenhouse. This publication is a general summary of greenhouse tomato practices. It is highly recommended that the reader obtain the publications listed below to get a more thorough view of greenhouse tomato production, hydroponics and the production of other vegetables in the greenhouse. Light and Temperature Control -Tomatoes are a warm season vegetable crop. They grow best under conditions of high light and warm temperatures (summer conditions).
Since he’s a mechanical engineer by training and practice, it begs the question: “How did Tom Lewman become a successful hydroponics grower?” Increasingly discontent with the high levels of chemical pesticides contained in the foods he consumed during business travel,Tom, together with his wife Nancy, planned a healthy solution.Their original intent was to have a small greenhouse in which to grow food for the family, though it soon became evident they were on to something much bigger. From the outside, Bux Mont Hydroponics in Perkasie, Pennsylvania (located near the historic Valley Forge), doesn’t look like a large operation, but looks can be deceiving. Consisting of a 6,000 square feet greenhouse, Bux Mont Hydroponics supplies tomatoes, basil, and arugula to seven stores out of a 20-store supermarket chain, with plans to supply all the stores in the chain with Bux Mont produce.Tom is currently considering other crops that include bell peppers, cilantro, dill and lettuce. Demand for Bux Mont fresh produce is so high that Tom is in the middle of building additional bays on his 11-acre property “I have enough supermarkets around me in a 15-mile radius to keep me busy,” said Tom. “Everything is local, delivered as fresh as it can be, and only handled by me.” Although much of the space in Tom’s hoop houses is occupied by rows of tomato vines, visitors will notice sections devoted to other plants, including basil. “There are so many hydroponic tomatoes coming in from places like Canada that prices here are being driven down,” said Tom. “I knew I had to do something different in order to succeed, and that is why I decided to grow basil as a cash crop.”

WIN Weight-control Information Network You do not have to stop eating chocolate cake or start running marathons to improve your health. Making small but steady changes in your eating and physical activity habits, over time, may help you lose weight if you need to, feel better, and improve your health. The information below can help you start to change your physical activity and eating habits. When you make changes to improve your health, you may also move your friends and family to do the same. Am I overweight? Overweight and obesity in adults can be defined using the body mass index (BMI), a tool that measures weight in relation to height. The table on the next page shows how BMI calculation works. A BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 refers to a healthy weight, a BMI of 25 to 29.9 refers to overweight, and a BMI of 30 or higher refers to obesity.
T-3200 Nutrition for Older Adults: Diet and Health Guidelines For Weight Loss Janice Hermann, Extension Nutrition Specialist Healthy Weight Loss Healthy weight loss focuses on a healthy lifestyle. Advice for those who want to lose weight is to aim for a slow, steady weight loss by: • Focusing on health, not appearance. • Setting reasonable weight loss goals. • Eating healthy foods, not “dieting.” • Getting regular physical activity. Reasonable goals Reasonable weight goals are: • Rate - A loss of 1 to 2 pounds a week. • Time frame - A loss of 10 percent body weight over six months. For a 250 pound person, a 10 percent loss over six months would be about 25 pounds. This would be about a one-pound loss per week. A 10 percent weight loss, even if someone is still overweight, can provide many health benefits: • Help blood glucose control. • Lower blood pressure. • Lower LDL cholesterol. People who lose weight slow and steady tend to lose more body fat and less muscle. They are also more likely to keep the weight off.
