Abstract The aim of the research is decreasing greenhouse soil pH by micronized-sulphur with bentonite and organic matter applications. The effects of the soil pH on fruit yield, fruit quality properties, plant growth and plant nutrition have been investigated. Micronized-sulphur with bentonite and leonardite were applied 150 kg/ha and 2000 kg/ha, respectively. Greenhouse soil pH at the beginning was 8.1 and the end of the experiment (approx. 5 months) it was decreased 0.51 unit and 0.45 unit by the application of sulphure and organic matter, respectively. The treatments were increasingly affected tomato yield in the experiment; 5.6 kg/m2, 5.8 kg/m2 ve 4.7 kg/m2 tomato yields were obtanied from organic matter, sulphur and control, respectively. Plant growth and development, nutrients uptake and fruit properties were also positively affected by the soil pH decreasing applications.
