To determine the efficacy of formulations CaNO32 liq, CaNO32 sol-1, CaNO32 sol-2and CaNO32 sol-3, as well as the most appropriate doseof each formulation to induce the growth and yield of tomato Lycopersicon esculentum Mill., theresearch was conducted in greenhouses, to transplanting a plant per plastic potwith capacity of 12 L, which were applied 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16 and 15 L·ha﹣1 of solution of each formulation more Steiner solution.The experimental design was randomized complete block with three replicates pertreatment. The best answer tomato was achieved with CaNO32 líq, followed by that seen with CaNO32 sol-1 source,but the best effect on fruit yield and dry weight of the same was observed withthe dose of 15 L·ha﹣1 of CaNO32 líq and CaNO32 sol-3,while CaNO32 sol-2 and CaNO32 sol-1 best were the 16 and 17 L·ha﹣1. Inall cases of calcium sources, doses that better effect resulted in the growthand fruit yield were lower that the recommended commercially, indicating thatfor growing saladette tomato variety Rio Grande should use a dose lower thatthe recommended to meet the objectives of agricultural sustainability, for theconservation and improvement of natural resources in this case the soil andtomato plants and improving the environment.
