Abstract
With ground nursery, the best age for transplanting tomato seedlings was 16-21 days after sowing in the nursery or at about 5 true-leaf stage although transplanting could be delayed for up to 28 days (6 true-leaf stage) without affecting performance significantly. At a poultry manure rate of 14 t ha -1, incorporation one week before transplanting gave the best yield results while application made 3 weeks before transplanting gave significant yield reductions of 22-39%.
