Tomatoes and tomato products are among the most appropriated functional foods. In our study, we used natural soil and plant conditioning materials in the production of tomato in an open field trial, in the study garden of Kecskemét College. A plant conditioning product made by phosphoric acid digestion of zeolite tufa (Rioplant), combined with Plantafosz Universal and Zeon A was used. Our test plant was tomato cultivar ‘Mobil’. Different doses and combinations of conditioning materials were used. Tests were made in our laboratory (Soil and Plant Testing Laboratory of Faculty of Horticulture). Total crop quantity, crop size and total pieces of the fruits were tracked in the vegetation phase and compared to the control plants. Our results showed that soil and plant conditioning materials had no significant effect on the crop quantity. Regarding the crop quality however, vitamin C content increased in fruits after each treatment, compared to the control. This increase was significant after combined treatment with Rioplant and Plantafosz Universal.
