Abstract:

The study was carried out to determine the suitable irrigation levels and soilless media for fresh market of tomato under greenhouse condition, at Hi-tech Horticulture unit, Saidapur farm, MARS, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad. The experiment was laid out in CRD with two factors viz., as factor I- drip irrigation at once a day (I1: 50 % PE, I2: 75 % PE I3: 100 % PE) and factor-II includes M1: Cocopeat, M2:Perlite, M3:Vermiculite, M4 Cocopeat + Perlite (50:50) – (1:1), M5: Cocopeat + Vermiculite (50:50) – (1:1), M6: Cocopeat + Perlite + Vermiculite (50:25:25)– (2:1:1), M7: Sole soil (Grown in earthen pot) M8: Sole soil (Grown under normal condition). The highest fruit yield (126.7 t ha-1) and fruit weight (46.77 g) were obtained from drip irrigation at 100 per cent pan evaporation with cocopeat + perlite + vermiculite (50:25:25). Similarly, I3M6 combination noticed higher gross returns (Rs. 1520334 ha-1) and net returns (Rs.797877 ha-1) over other treatment combinations
