Abstract:

The present experiment was carried out to study the “Effect of Naphthalene Acetic acid (NAA) and Gibberellic acid (GA3) on growth and yield of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.)”. With the increased supply of NAA up to a level of 100 ppm plant height was significantly increased. Application of NAA significantly facilitates the number of branches per plant and the maximum value for this character was obtained with 100 ppm of NAA application. The number of fruits per plant and fruit weight was significantly improved due to increasing level of NAA application. The maximum values were recorded with 100 ppm NAA. Fruit weight and the number of fruits were significantly improved due to the GA3 application and a maximum yield i.e. was obtained due to application GA3 at 80 ppm.
