Maxifort

(F1) Tomato Seed

Product ID: 2700

Highly vigorous, disease-resistant rootstock.

Grow tomato rootstock to add disease resistance and much improved plant vigor for an extended harvest. Maxifort adds a very high level of vigor. High resistance to fusarium races 1, 2, fusarium root rot, nematodes, corky root rot, tobacco mosaic virus, and verticillium wilt. Disease resistance is not transferred to the scion plant. NOTE: Maxifort should be used for rootstock only. If left to grow on its own, the fruit produced is small, stays green, and is not good for consumption. Primed seed for improved germination. Avg. 21,200 seeds/oz.

Additional Information



CULTURE: For more information on grafting with rootstock tomatoes, please refer to one of our technical guides: Top Grafting Tomatoes or Side Grafting Tomatoes. Once the grafted plants have healed, continue by growing and managing the plants as you would normally.
Grow plants at 66-68°F (19-20°C) day and night temperature. After cotyledon leaves have expanded, fertilize with a complete nutrient solution (EC 1.0, pH 5.8) or equivalent as needed to keep plants dark green and healthy; increase EC as plants grow. When transplanting into the greenhouse, maintain 73-77°F (23-25°C) day and night temperature for a few days after transplanting to promote rapid vegetative growth and root establishment. Once fruit begins to set, lower night temperature to 62-66°F (17-19°C) and keep a daytime temperature of 68-72°F (20-22°C).
TRELLISING: It is recommended to prune the plants to 1-2 stems and trellis up a string.
HARVEST: Fully vine-ripen fruit only for local retailing or use. Pick fruit less ripe the further the distance and the longer the time between harvest and the customer.
DISEASES AND PESTS: Use crop rotation or new media to reduce soil-borne disease problems. Regularly schedule releases of beneficial insects to control pests.
TRANSPLANTS: Avg. 950 plants/1,000 seeds.
