Abstract

The study was to evaluate the effect of nitrogen (N) and phosphorous (P) on the growth and yield component of tomato. The treatments were four levels of N (N0: 0kg N/ha, N100: 100kg N/ha, N150: 150kg N/ha and N200: 200kg N/ha) and four levels of P (P0: 0kg P2O5/ha, P50: 50kg P2O5/ha, P100: 100kg P2O5/ha and p150: 150kg P2O5/ha). The result of the study revealed that number of flowers per plant, number of fruits of plant and fruit weight per plant increased significantly with increasing N level up to 200kg N/ha, whereas fruit yield increased significantly up to 200kg N/ha. All these parameters also increased significantly with increasing the level of P up to 150kg P2O5 /ha. However, from this study it may be concluded that application of N200 and 150kg P2O5 per hectare maximize the higher yield of tomato.
