We investigated the effects of substrate type, substrate volume, fruit thinning, and intrarow spacing on root mass and yield of long-term hydroponic tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum L.) to quantitatively evaluate the relationship between root mass and yield. Four substrates (Rockwool [RW], RW + organic, zeolite + cocopeat [ZC], and organic bags) were used in the experiments. Two sub-treatments examined the effect of heavy vs. light fruit thinning. No correlation was observed between total rootdoi:10.2525/shita.28.104 fatcat:alb5xxlndnctdhxmld4sqqye5i
