Influence of plant geometry on physicochemical attributes and yield of tomato (<em>Solanum lycopersicum</em> L.) under protected environment

Author(s):

Harmanjeet Singh, Parveen Sharma and Pardeep Kumar

Abstract:
The experiment was conducted at Vegetable Research Farm, Department of Vegetable Science and Floriculture, CSK Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvavidyalaya, Palampur during spring-summer 2016 and autumn-winter 2016-17 seasons to study the influence of plant geometry on physicochemical attributes and yield of tomato (<em>Solanum lycopersicum</em> L.) under protected environment. Experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications, consisting of two treatments comprising of two plant geometries (70 × 30 cm spacing with two stems pruning and 70 × 60 cm spacing with three stems pruning). Plants spaced at 70 × 60 cm with 3 stems pruning had maximum yield/plant, total soluble solids and equatorial diameter but titrable acidity and ascorbic acid contents were maximum in those fruits whose plants were spaced at 70 × 30 cm with 2 stems.
