Abstract:
The experiment was laid out in Factorial RBD with two factor i.e. factor first is zinc solubilizer and factor second is levels of zinc, it has twelve treatments replicated three times. The tomato variety ‘Shivam’ was used for the study. Recommended dose of fertilizer (250:250:250 kg NPK /ha) was applied through urea, ssp and mop. The effect of zinc solubilizer on growth parameters of tomato indicated that the zinc solubilizer B2 (Trichoderma viride) recorded maximum plant height (91.41 cm), stem diameter (1.65 cm), Internodal length (12.23 cm), number of leaves per plant (71.22), number of branches per plant (18.09), leaf area per plant (577.54 cm2),crop duration (147.93 days). The effect of different levels of zinc on growth parameters of tomato indicated that the levels of zinc Zn3 (30 kg ZnSO4/ha) recorded maximum plant height (88.35 cm), stem diameter (1.53 cm), Internodal length (11.21 cm), number of leaves per plant (68.44), number of branches per plant (16.90), leaf area per plant (541.39 cm2),crop duration (144.87 days), The interaction effect of different zinc solubilizer and levels of zinc on growth, yield and quality parameters of tomato indicated that the B2Zn3 (Trichoderma viride + 30 kg ZnSO4/ha) recorded maximum plant height (96.15 cm), stem diameter (1.81 cm), Internodal length (13.43 cm), number of leaves per plant (75.83), number of branches per plant (18.87), leaf area per plant (613.30 cm2),crop duration (149.49 days).
