Organic substances imparted significant effects on the growth, yield and quality parameters of tomato during the experimentation and maximum plant height of 113.87 cm at 60 DAT and 173.40 cm at 120 DAT was reported with application of RDF-N:P:K (180:100:100) kg/ha, while at highest plant height at 180 DAT was observed with application of FYM (25 t/ha) + VC (10 t/ha) + Waste Decomposer (500 l/ha). Same treatment also found best for most of traits like  number of branches (8.72), minimum days to first harvest (85.33), number of fruits per plant (52.4), fruit weight (103.69 g), fruit diameter (5.34 cm), fruit volume (108.87 cc), yield per plant (5.43 kg), yield per square meter (12.05 kg), TSS (5.19 %) of fruit, moisture content (93.90 %) of fruit, lycopene content (3.82 mg/100 g), acidity (0.458 %), ascorbic acid (18.95 mg/100 g),  sugars (2.80 %), chlorophyll content of tomato leaf (0.582 mg/g) and highest net return of Rs. 172070.00 per ha.
