|Abstract:||The present investigation on "Studies on agro techniques for promising tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) F1 hybrids" was carried out at the Regional Fruit Research Station, Ganeshkhind, Pune -7, during rabi season (September 2000 to March 2001). The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design with 10 treatment combinations comprising of two cultivars and five fertilizer doses. There were three replications. The five fertility levels were 100+50+50; 150+75+75; 200+100+100; 250+125+125 and 300+150+150 NPK kg per ha and the two tomato hybrids were Hybrid No. 57 and Rajashree. The fertility level F5 (300+150+150 kg NPK per ha) was most efficient in improving the growth in terms of plant height, plant spread (EW and NS) and branching. This fertility level also gave the maximum production (yield) as compared to other fertility levels. However, in this fertility level F5, the highest acidity and the lowest TSS (%) was recorded. Thus, the fertilizer doses of 300+150+150 NPK kg/ha was found to be the optimum for maximum yield without affecting the quality of fruit, as compared to other fertility levels, which can be used for exploiting the yield potential of newly developed F1 hybrid, Hybrid No. 57 and recently released variety Rajashree which is also a F1 hybrid.|
