Abstract:

A study has been undertaken to study the effect of seaweed gel on growth and yield of tomato at College Orchard, Horticultural College and Research Institute, Coimbatore. There were ten treatments including one absolute control. The trial was laid out in a Randomized Block Design with three replications. The results showed that treatment T7 receiving NPK @ 200:300:200 kg ha-1 + O6 EM and MA GEL @ 12.5 kg acre-1 + O6 EM and MA GEL 1% spray recorded highest plant height, number of leaves, number of branches and leaf area index. Early flower opening was also recorded in T7. Individual fruit weight, fruit yield per plant, yield per plot and yield per hectare was found more in T7 (NPK @ 200:300:200 kg ha-1 + O6 EM and MA GEL @ 12.5 kg acre-1 + O6 EM and MA GEL 1% spray). Benefit Cost Ratio is also high in this treatment.
