In Hungary water supply comes more and more a determinative factor in processing tomato, thanks to the climatic variability. Water is a limited quantity element so we had to take care about it. Drip irrigation is a useful technology to save water, because this type of irrigation got the highest benefit. As an effect of irrigation the significant difference between plant weight and yield in the three water supply treatments (regularly, cut off 25 days before harvest and unirrigated) we measured. Cut off irrigation could help us to maximise our profit, because in the year 2007, the cut off plants got higher production of dry matter/plant than the regularly irrigated and the unirrigated.
