The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three replication at horticultural research farm of Udai Pratap Autonomous College, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh during year 2015-16. Max/min, temperature/humidity was measured 29 0
C, 89%/63%. The objectives are to study the effect of varying levels of NAA, 2, 4-D and GA3
on growth, quality and yield of tomato and to ascertain the best concentration of NAA, 2, 4-D and GA3
for vegetative growth and fruit quality of tomato. The experiment consisted tomato variety viz. kashi vishesh (H-86) and different levels of NAA (15, 30, 45 ppm), 2, 4-D (5, 10, 15 ppm) and GA3
(20, 30, 40 ppm) of different concentrations were used. From the result it was observed that concentration of GA3
@ 40 ppm concentration showed significant effects on growth, flowering, yield and quality of tomato.
