Performance of Different Tomato Cultivars Under the Climatic Conditions of Northern Areas (GILGIT)

Fazal Rehman, Sharafat Khan , Faridullah and Shafiullah

Twelve tomato varieties were sown at Agriculture Research Institute for Northern Areas (ARINA) Juglote, to study the various growth productivity and quality characters for evaluating under agro climatic conditions of the area and to compare performance of the local variety with other commercial varieties. Data on days to flower initiation, number of clusters/plant, days to first fruit picking, weight of individual fruit, weight of total fruit/plantnumber of fruits /plantweight of fruits/plot, length and diameter of fruits and yield (kg/ha) were recorded. The number of clusters/plant were maximum in variety Roma (13.5) and minimum in variety Chico. Chico bore the highest number of fruits/plant (52.50) while F M B9 and local check had the lowest number of of fruits/plant (24.75 and 26.0). Fruit size was maximum in Tanja (6.90 cm) and minimum in local check (3.08). Savio and Roma took the minimum time (100 and 102 days), while Festen and Red top took the maximum time (125 days) from transplanting of seedlings to ripening of first fruit. Festen and local check were early maturing varieties, while Roma and Marglobe had long fruiting period. Tanja and Marglobe were late in maturity as compared to other varieties. Roma and Marglobe produced the highest Yield 9218.75 and 9140.75 kg/ha, respectively than the other varieties and local check proved to be the lowest yielder with (3596.25 kg/ha).
