About Tip burn, or marginal necrosis, is a long-standing problem in tomato cultivation which occasionally rears its head in the new strategy of Next Generation Growing (NGG). What would be better than to solve this phenomenon with properly adjusted fertilisation? Dutchman Wim Voogt has investigated the influence of chlorine and iron polyphosphate on calcium uptake. To date, appropriate climate measures combined with the right variety choice have proved to be the best remedy.
