Abstract: An investigation was carried out at the Precision Farming Development Centre (PFDC), Department of Horticulture, GKVK, UAS, Bengaluru during 2013-14 to know the effect of different colour and varying percentages of shade nets with fifteen treatments replicated thrice .The results have shown that treatment T12 (C4P3: Black colour shade net + 75 per cent shade ) has recorded highest plant height (185.67 cm), but early flowering (28.10 days), flowers per plant (118.5) per cent fruit set (78.17 %), fruits per plant (88.15), yield per plant (8.73 kg) and yield per hectare (193.80 t/ha) was higher under the treatment T9 (T9 - C3P3: Red colour shade net + 75 per cent shade). The maximum number of branches (19.20), leaf area (86.81 cm2), dry matter per plant (254.7 g) and early fruit set (7.77 days) were also higher under the same treatment. With respect to fruit size maximum fruit length (5.51 cm), breadth (5.32 cm) and fruit weight (74.99 g) was recorded in treatment T12. Among quality parameters, TSS (4.95 oB) and fruit firmness (4.38 kg/cm2), Lycopene and Ascorbic acid content (5.51 and 16.46 mg/100g) respectively were higher under treatment T9 (T9 - C3P3: Red colour shade net + 75 per cent shade). Maximum shelf life of 26.86 days was registered in fruits of tomato crop grown under treatment T3 (T3- C1P3: Green with black interwoven shade net + 75 per cent shade) while shelf life in 1 per cent ventilated polybags was also higher (32.45 days) in under treatment T3 (T3- C1P3: Green with black interwoven shade net + 75 per cent shade). The results of this study shows that cultivation of tomato crop under 75 per cent red colour shade net is ideal for getting higher yield with better quality fruits throughout the year.
