A field experiment with eleven treatments including control was conducted at the Rajola Farm of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, MGCGV, Chitrakoot – Satna (MP), during the Kharif season of 2009 to find out the most appropriate integrated nutrient management system for sustainable tomato production. The best treatment comprising of organic manures (FYM and Vermicompost), inorganic fertilizers (N, P and K), and plant growth regulator GA3 on growth and yield of Tomato, for this region. It was found that application of T9 100% RDF + VC 10 t ha-1 + Seedling treatment with GA3 100 ppm gave fruit yield (49.79 t ha-1) over control (10.00 t ha-1) which was significantly higher over all the treatments. The organic sources of nutrition along with inorganic sources showed incremental effect for almost all parameters including yield over inorganic sources alone.
