Abstract:

Field investigation was conducted at Horticultural College and Research Institute, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore to elucidate the effects of shade and fertigation on growth, yield and quality of tomato hybrid ‘Ruchi’. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three replications. The main plots were open and shade (35 per cent) and the sub-plot treatments included three levels (100, 75 and 50 per cent of recommended dose) each of water soluble and straight fertilizers. The yield parameters like number of fruits per plant, fruit weight and polar and equatorial diameters were the highest at 100 per cent WSF under shade. The highest yield per plot (189.6, 208.4 and 203.7 kg) and per hectare (99.8, 109.5 and 106.7 tonnes) during seasons I, II and III respectively were observed in the treatment with 100 per cent water soluble fertilizer under shaded condition.
