Abstract:
The current study titledIntegrated nutrient management in tomato under Chhattisgarh Plains.’’ was carried out in Horticulture research farm College of Agriculture and Research Station, Mahasamund, (C.G.) during Rabi 2020-21.To estimate the influence of INM practices on growth, production and economics of tomato. The trial was conducted in RBD with three replication and nine treatments using variety Kashi Adarsh, to find out the mixture of organic and inorganic fertilizers on growth and yield of tomato. On the basis of results, application of 75% RDF +50% vermicompost found to be most effective were it recorded maximum plant height 67.12 cm, 75.70 cm, 96.35 cm, and 98.30 cm (30, 50, 70 DAT and at harvest respectively.), maximum number of internodes per plant 8.79, 15.72, 21.67 and 21.74 (30, 50, 70 DAT and at harvest respectively), maximum number of branches per plant 7.37, 9.51, 12.98 and 12.98 (30, 50, 70 DAT and at harvest respectively), lowest day to 50% flowering (29.99 days). Maximum number of fruit per plant (42.02), maximum number of diameter (69.22 mm), maximum fruit weight (74.49 g), the maximum fruit yield per plot (22.45 kg).Maximum number of locules per fruit (4.00 per fruit). Maximum (TSS 4.59%), maximum titrable acidity (0.91%), highest content of ascorbic acid (32.06mg 100 g-1), maximum fruit pH (4.21).
