Abstract


Tomato needs nutrient for it growth, such as calcium. Calcium is an important macronutrient for cell and fruit growth. This reasearch used nano-calcium on three phase (aragonite, calcite and vaterite). This reasearch objective was to know the effect of the three nano-calcium phases to tomato production. The research conducted on Kadur Village, Pamekasan regency. Tomato was planted on polybag, arranged by Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD). Treatment consists of nano-calcium phase (Aragonite, Calcite, Vaterite) and its dosage (0.25, 0.5, and 0.75 g/plant). Each treatment replicated three times. The observed parameters were plant height, leaves count, leaf area index, and fruit weight. The data were analyzed by anova factorial RCBD  and Duncan Means Range Test (DMRT) 5%. The result showed that the aplication nano-calcium phase, dosage and its interaction gave significantly decreased leaves count and leaf area index.
