Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to study the effect of spacing and training on vegetative growth characteristics and yield of tomato under polyhouse. The experiment was comprised of four levels of spacing and three levels of training with Factorial Completely Randomized Design. The experimental results revealed that maximum plant height (241.18 cm), stem diameter (7.42 cm), number of branches per plant (26.67), leaf area (325.84 cm2), number of clusters per plant (18.63), number of fruits per cluster (6.31), number of fruits per plant (112.44), fruit weight (106.93 g), volume of fruit (110.70 cc), specific gravity (0.97gcm3) and yield per plant (12.07 kg) were recorded on wider spacing S4 (60 x 60 cm). The maximum stem diameter (7.36 cm), number of branches per plant (24.53), number of clusters per plant (15.93), total yield per plant (8.48 kg) and yield per square meter (20.96 kg) were exhibited by T3 (triple stem training). The maximum yield per square meter was observed in interaction S2T3 (45 x 45 cm, triple stem). while number of branches per plant (30.33), number of clusters per plant (19.67), number of fruits per cluster (6.77), number of fruits per plant (125.87) and total yield per plant (12.88 kg) were observed in treatment combination S4T2 (60 x 60 cm, double stem training).
