Glasshouse farming has essentially expanded the creation of vegetables and lessened reliance on ecological conditions. In Mediterranean regions, vegetable products are these days a standout amongst the most imperative provenances of an organic waste formation. Anaerobic assimilation is among the strategies utilized to treat this sort of biodegradable waste. This paper aims to study the effect of moisture content on tomato wastes anaerobic digestion that discarded by groceries in Babylon city in Iraq in order to enhance biogas production. The procedure is performed by using three batch anaerobic digesters which fed by tomato leftovers. The PH of three feeding substrates is adjusted to 5 by using (40% NAOH solution of PH 11.13).Three different moisture content are fed to the digesters (94.4% ,96.5% and 99%). The biogas produced from digesters 1,2,3 are (198,210,231 ml/g) vs respectively. According to the result of this paper , the biogas production is increased as moisture content increased and the tomato wastes is an appropriate substrate for anaerobic digestion process.

Keywords: Glasshouse farming, Anaerobic Digestion, tomato wastes, moisture content etc.
