Abstract: A pot experiment was conducted during November 2000 to March 2001 to find out the optimum fertilizer requirement of grafted tomato. Four levels of N, 4 levels of P, 4 levels of K, 2 levels of S and 1 kg sodium molybdate and 10 t ha–1 organic manure were applied in equal distribution to all these by using a selected set of 12 treatments. The highest tomato yield of 1459 g plant–1 was obtained with the application of 200 kg N, 120 kg P2O5, 80 kg K2O, 20 kg S ha–1, which was statistically similar with N150P120K80S20, N150P40K80S20, N100P120K80S10, N150P120K0S20, N150P80K80S20 and N150P120K120S20 treatments. Yield increased 694% over control. On economic point of view N150P40K80S20 treatment was the most suitable fertilizer dose for grafted tomato because it gave 605% higher yield over control.
