Tomatoes are native to South America and were first cultivated by the Aztecs and Incas. Today, people grow tomatoes worldwide and incorporate them as a crucial element in various cuisines. People can eat tomatoes either raw or cooked, and they play a significant role in various dishes such as salads, soups, stews, and sauces. Tomatoes are also a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making them a nutritious addition to a healthy diet.

Farmers grow commercial tomatoes intensively for processing, while they cultivate normal tomatoes traditionally for fresh consumption in markets.

Differences between factory tomatoes and normal tomatoes

Taste: Normal tomatoes generally have a better taste than factory tomatoes because farmers breed the latter for uniformity and durability rather than flavor.

Nutritional value: Compared to normal tomatoes, factory tomatoes may contain lower levels of antioxidants and vitamin C due to their growth and processing methods.

Appearance: Farmers usually harvest factory tomatoes before they ripen and artificially ripen them during transportation, which can alter their texture and appearance.

Chemicals: Farmers often apply pesticides and other chemicals to factory tomatoes to increase yield and prevent diseases, while normal tomatoes are grown with fewer chemicals.

Cost: Factory tomatoes are usually less expensive than normal tomatoes because they are produced on a large scale and are primarily used for processed foods.

Program Disclaimer


Please keep in mind that these programs were developed without being based on any soil analysis. Some applications as per the schedule may be reduced or eliminated if the farmer is happy with the progress of the crop. This program will allow the farmer to drastically reduce or even eliminate his conventional chemical fertilizer program. The program can be adjusted as the season progresses and it is the farmer’s choice to follow the above program. The idea always remains to keep the farmer’s production costs as low as possible and to achieve the same or an increase of yield.


Neem asseblief kennis dat hierdie programme ontwikkel is dat geen grond ontledings ontvang is nie. Sommige toedienings volgens die skedule kan verminder of uitgeskakel word indien die boer tevrede is met die vordering van sy gewasse. Hierdie programme sal die boer in staat stel om sy konvensionele chemiese bemestingsprogram drasties te verminder of selfs uit te skakel. Die program kan aangepas word soos die seisoen vorder en dit is die boer se keuse om bogenoemde program te volg. Die idee bly altyd om die boer se produksiekoste so laag as moontlik te hou en om dieselfde of ’n opbrengsverhoging te behaal.
