Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at Vegetable Research Center, Department of Horticulture, VNMKV, Parbhani to study the effect of weather parameters on quality aspects of tomato. The experiment was conducted in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications in rabi season of 2015-16 and treatments consists of 4 dates of sowing i.e.26th August 2015 (MW-35), 9th September 2015 (MW37), 23rd September 2015 (MW39) and 7th October, 2015 (MW41) at 15 days intervals and two varieties V1 (Phule raja) and V2 (PKM-1), and found that total soluble solid content, acidity were not significantly influenced by either dates of sowing or varieties under the study. However, the ascorbic acid content in the tomatoes was varied among the dates of sowing and between the varieties i.e crop sown in D2 (MW-37) observed highest ascorbic acid content (23.34 mg/100g) and found to be significantly superior over the all other dates of sowing and the var. Phule raja reported highest ascorbic acid (i.e.20.38 mg/100g) and significantly superior over the PKM-1.
