Abstract:

The experiment was deigned to find out the best alternative way to grow healthy tomato seedling under water stress condition. Three different protected and unprotected conditions (Polyhouse, Low tunnel and open field condition) were selected for sowing of seedling. Open field condition was taken up as a control. Production of healthy and vigorous tomato seedling is most important factor in successful commercial production and yield of quality tomato fruits. Moreover, germination of the seed is a critical stage, because the rest of the plant life is directly dependent upon the quality of its germination. Under the observation taken up during development of nursery; the growth of seedling in portray under polyhouse was found significantly superior over all the other treatments on minimum days taken for germination of seedling (5.41 days), Plant height (6.99 cm), Number of leaf (5.22), Fresh weight (0.92 g) and Dry weight (0.56 g).
