Abstract:

Agricultural biodiversity is an essential element of biodiversity highly threatened now-a-days by the environmental stresses and consumers pressure. Thus, a knowledge-based understanding and conservation is a crucial condition for the future of food security. The assortment of tomatoes genotypes offers a gene pool for future breeding as it may contain traits that can be useful for the development of new varieties and hybrids with enhanced quantitative and qualitative features. In this study, a screening of 50 varieties and local population of tomato was achieved. These varieties were cultivated in greenhouse, one of the objective of study being the identification of plant type of growth and the differences between them from morphological, physiological and agronomical point of view. The paper presents the results of the biometric measurements on phenotype characteristics, such as fruit weight, height, diameter, the content in dry matter and type of growth of tomato plants cultivated in greenhouses.
