Abstract:
A field experiment on “Influence of calcium and boron application on quality of tomato” was conducted during kharif 2018-19 at Kuduragere village (Karnataka, India). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with ten treatments and three replications. It consists of three levels of calcium (0, 5 & 10 kg ha-1) and boron (0, 1.1 & 2.2 kg ha-1) along with RDF and FYM. The results of the study revealed that application of calcium @ 10 kg ha-1+ B @ 2.2 kg ha-1 along with RDF and FYM (T10) recorded significantly higher TSS (5.20 °Brix), reducing sugar (1.06%), ascorbic acid (46.96 mg 100 g-1), lycopene (116.21 mg kg-1) and shelf life (17.54 days) when compared to absolute control TSS (2.91 °Brix), reducing sugar (0.29%), ascorbic acid (15.66 mg 100 g-1), lycopene (49.96 mg kg-1) and shelf life (6.33 days) (T1).
