The performance of tomato crop cultivation in open field and under shadenet house condition was evaluated at farmers field in Shahdol district. Under shadenet house condition green colour shade net having 50 per cent shade factor was used in the study. Similar crop along with similar cultural practices in the open field and shade net cultivation was selected for performance evaluation. Drip irrigation facility with similar frequency of irrigation was done on both fields. The study revealed that under shade net condition performance of tomato the crop yield, plant height, harvest duration and number of harvest increased by 56.92 per cent, 53.37 per cent, 38.86 per cent and 59.38 per cent, respectively over open field cultivation.

Abstract


The performance of tomato crop cultivation in open field and under shadenet house condition was evaluated at farmers field in Shahdol district. Under shadenet house condition green colour shade net having 50 per cent shade factor was used in the study. Similar crop along with similar cultural practices in the open field and shade net cultivation was selected for performance evaluation. Drip irrigation facility with similar frequency of irrigation was done on both fields. The study revealed that under shade net condition performance of tomato the crop yield, plant height, harvest duration and number of harvest increased by 56.92 per cent, 53.37 per cent, 38.86 per cent and 59.38 per cent, respectively over open field cultivation.
