Fruit yield, seed yield and seed quality parameters were worked out in Solan lalima variety of tomato during kharif season of the year 2018 in Solan district of Himachal Pradesh. Trichoderma viride, Neem Cake and oil, cow urine, Bacillus thuringiensis and HaNPV were used as bio-pesticides in different concentration and combinations. The applications of Trichoderma viride @ 50 g/plot  FYM @ 10 kg/plot  Neem oil @ 5ml/l in tomato crop is significantly better for number of healthy fruits harvested (22.80), average fruit weight per plant (79.43 g), number of seeds per fruit (95), seed yield per plant (6.22 g), seed yield per ha (184.22 kg), germination percentage (91.75%), seedling length (20.30 cm), speed of germination (19.45), dry weight of seedling (1.78 mg), seed vigour index I (1861.83) and II (163.36) and 1000 seed weight (2.92 g) over the other treatments. The results of the present study suggested that Trichoderma viride and neem oil in combination have a great potential to increase the yield and seed quality of tomato crop.

Keywords: Trichoderma viride, Neem oil, HaNPV, Bacillus thuringiensis and bio-pesticides.
