Abstract

A study on biometric characteristics of tomato (cv. Vaishali) grown in uncontrolled poly-greenhouse was studied. Changes in height, number of leaves, number of nodes and number of branches of tomato during the growth period and yield were observed at 7 days interval throughout the growth period. The results were compared the performance of the crop grown in open field (control) condition. The results revealed that performance of the crop grown inside the poly-greenhouse (2985.84 g/plant) was comparatively better than that grown in open condition (819.94 g/plant) and the increase was nearly 3½ times higher in fruit yield.
