The effect of different levels of N, P, and K with and without Ca, Mg and Si, was studied on tomato cultivar Floradel at the Isabela Experiment Substation. The results obtained revealed that 224 Kg N and P/ha appear to be adequate for tomato production in a Coto clay, an Oxisol. A fertilizer-yield equation was employed to describe the relationship between applications of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium and the yield in metric tons/ha of marketable tomatoes, in an experiment conducted in the
