Abstract

The growth and yield of tomato largely depend on soil and climatic conditions and also on variety. Proper application of plant growth regulators and Zn plays a vital role. The field experiment was conducted at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Farm, Dhaka, Bangladesh during October 2017 to April, 2018 to evaluate the appropriate doses and combination of growth regulators and effect of foliar application of IBA, GA3 and Zn on growth and yield of tomato. Single variety BARI Tomato-14, and foliar application of IBA 5ml/L, GA3 5ml/l and Zn were used to conduct this experiment. The experiment was laid out in Randomized complete Block Design (RCBD) having three factors and replicated three times. Data were collected on plant height, number of leaves per plant, number of  branches per plant, Leaf Area Index(LAI), chlorophyll content of leaf, number flowers cluster per pant, number of fruit per plant, weight of fruit, yield per hectare. A statistically significant variation was recorded in terms of all the characters related to growth and yield quality of tomato. The maximum plant height, number of branches per plant, length of branch was observed in treatment of T7 (IBA+GA3+Zn). The maximum number flowers cluster per plant and number of fruit per plant was produced by treatment of T7 (IBA+GA3+Zn).  The maximum yield of fruits per hectare (100 tones) was obtained from treatment of T7 (IBA+GA3+Zn). The lowest yield of fruits per hectare (58 tones) was obtained from treatment of T3 (Zn).  In future need to conduct research to evaluate the appropriate doses and combination of growth regulators on tomato.
