Abstract

The present study aspired to evaluate some tomato cultivars under different levels of saline irrigation water under poly house. Six widely cultivated varieties viz., Gujarat Tomato-1, Junagadh Tomato-3, Coimbatore-3, Arka Vikas, Pusa Ruby and Pusa Early Dwarf were evaluated. The study outcome expressed a relation that consistent decrease in growth with increase salt concentration in saline irrigation water. About fifty per cent decrease in growth, flower and yield parameters was observed at 5.0 dSm-1 level of saline irrigation water. The quality of fruits (TSS, Ascorbic acid, Acidity, Reducing sugar, Total sugar and Proline) was increased with increasing salt concentration in saline irrigation water. Pusa Ruby and Junagadh Tomato-3 gave better response with increased salt levels in irrigation water. The variety Pusa Ruby gave maximum plant height (155.25 cm) and number of branches (30.92) per plant and variety Junagadh Tomato-3 gave highest yield and quality parameters with different levels of saline irrigation water.
