Recommended States


Recommended states for cultivation under normal agro-climatic conditions in:

Kharif KA,RJ, HR, PB, WB, CH,OD,AS, HP, NE


Selection of the field/land preparation practices

The field should be well prepared free from weeds and well drainage facility. 1-2 deep ploughing, Soil should be exposed to sunlight, 3 to 4 rounds of harrows to reach fine tilt. Before the final harrow, apply 8 to 10 MT well-decomposed FYM/acre along with 250 gm Trichoderma for controlling soil-born fungus.

Seed Treatment-rate of timing/ chemical

Seeds are treated with Thiram 3 g per Kg of seeds.

Sowing Time

Rainy, Rabi

Sowing method

Seed Rate: 40-50 g per acre.

Sowing: Prepare the raised bed of 180x90x15cm, for 1acre 10 to 12 beds are required.
The nursery should be free from weeds and debris. Line sowing is recommended.

Distance between two rows: 8-10 cm (4 fingers) apart,
Distance between seed to seeds: 3-4 cm ( 2 fingers), Seeds are sown in line at 0.5-1.0 cm deep
Transplanting: Transplanting should be done 21-25 days after sowing.
Spacing: Row to Row and Plant to Plant - 120 - 90 x 60- 45cm


Fertilizer dose with timing

Total N:P:K requirement @ 100:150:150 kg per acre.

Dose & Timing:
Basal Dose: Apply 33% N and 50% P, K as basal dose during final land preparation.
Top Dressing: 33% N and remaining 50%P, 25% K at 30 days after transplanting and 34% N, 25% K at 50-55 days after transplanting.

Weed Control - Chemicals with doses and timing

Timely weed removal is very important, need-based hand weeding can be done to ensure a healthy crop.

Diseases & Pest control- Chemicals with doses and timing

For effective crop control  use the following Insect and disease solution:

After Transplanting soil drench with Voliam Flexi @200 ml/acre
Powdery Mildew and Late Blight- Apply Amistar (200ml/acre), Amistar TOP (200 ml/acre), Revus(160 ml/acre),Folio Gold (400 ml/acre) 
Alternaria/Anthracnose - Apply Blue Copper @ 600g/acre,
Alternaria - Apply Kuman L @ 600 ml/acre and for any other diseases apply fungicide as per recommendation from the Department of Agriculture (plant protection).
Aphid+Jassid+White Fly - Apply Actara @ 40g/acre,Alika @ 50 ml/acre
Mites - Apply Pegasus @ 200ml/acre
Fruit Borer - Apply Alika @ 50 ml/acre, Matador @ 120 ml/acre,
and for any other Insects apply recommended insecticides.

Irrigation Schedule

Irrigation Frequency Depends upon -

A. Soil type: Light soils need more frequency. Heavy soils need less frequency.

B. Crop stage:
Vegetative stage: maintain adequate moisture for the development of roots.
Flowering & fruiting - frequent and shallow irrigation.
Harvesting - gradually reduce irrigation during harvesting

C. Growing season:
Summer - requires frequent irrigation.
Winter- As against the summer season, in winter the irrigation frequency is longer.
Rainy - very less frequency depending upon soil moisture


Harvest the fruit at the time of physiological maturity. It starts maturing by 70-75 days after transplanting- depending on season/climate. Picking is done generally at an interval of 4-5 days.
Depending on the type of market/distance -tomatoes are picked.
