Abstract:
A pot experiment with four off season kharif varieties of Odisha were arranged in a factorial completely randomized design with an aim to investigate the effect of waterlogging on the reproductive phase and yield of tomato and to find out the best performing cultivar out of four. 45 days old tomato seedlings were subjected to short term waterlogging stress of 15 cm depth stagnant water for 1, 2 and 3 days respectively. A reduction of about 50% in flowering and fruiting were observed in susceptible varieties, where as in case of U. Kumari it was about 44% under 2 days of waterlogging. Short term waterlogging strongly influence the flowering and fruit maturity irrespective of any cultivars. Fruit setting percentage were also decreased in all the cultivars over control plants. U. Kumari was observed with highest fruit setting percentage of 73.6% and 71.9% under 1 and 2 days of waterlogging under stress about 50-60% reduction in yield were also observed.
