ABSTRACT

An experiment was conducted to study, the effect of different planting date and variety on the extension of picking period of tomato at the Horticulture Farm, BAU, Mymensingh during 2000-2001. Yield and yield contributing characters were best in October 25 planting . The highest yield of tomato (86.40 t ha-1) was obtained from October 25 planting, compared to the lowest ( 16.8 t ha-1) from February 24 planting. The variety BARI Tomato 7 produced the highest yield (57.02 t ha-1) and BARI Tomato 5 produced the lowest yield (51.38 t ha-1). All the parameters showed decreasing response with delay in planting.
