Plant spacing trials for canning tomatoes were initiated in Yolo County in 1946. Since the introduction of the field seeded method plant spacing has become of special interest to tomato growers. In this method, the cost of establishing the field is the same regardless of the spacing, while in transplanted fields the cost will increase with closer spacings.
