The study was carried out at the experimental field of the Faculty of Agriculture y Zootecnia, Universidad Juarez in the State of Durango, Mexico.The following factors were evaluated on soil physical and chemical parameters and yield: factor A; with and without plastic mulch and factor B; Manure dosage, whose levels were: control (no application); 40 t ha-1, 80 t ha-1and 160 t ha-1 respectively. As additional level, one chemical fertilizer was used (100-60-00 kg ha-1). The crop used was tomato hybrid type saladette Rio Grande. The irrigation systems used were gravity during 1998 and drip irrigation in 1999. The treatments was settled down in a random experimental block design with three replications. The experimental data indicated that organic matter and nitrates showed an increment in their content with significance due to the manure applications with dark plastic mulch. For 1998 treatments 1 to 7 (control, chemical fertilizer whithout black plastic mulch, chemical fertilizer with black plastic mulch, 120 t ha-1 without black plastic mulch, control without black plastic mulch, 40 t ha-1 without black plastic mulch and 80 t ha-1without black plastic mulch) were higher in a range of 46.9 to 58.8 t ha-1 to those obtained in treatments, 8-12 respectively. In 1999 yield showed statistical significance, in the yield for the control treatment was lower compared to the other treatments. In addition, the chemical fertilizer level had similar yield production than the manure (120 t ha-1) with plastic mulch (117.42 t ha-1).
