Study of growing containers on tomato yield, quality and economics

Author(s): Bhagwat Saran Asati and Manoj Kumar Chandraker
Abstract: An investigation was undertaken to assess the impact of different growing containers on the yield, quality and economics of tomato cultivation. Employing a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with nine treatments replicated three times, the study revealed distinct variations among containers regarding yield and quality attributes. Treatment T3 (White Polythene Bags), utilizing a specific type of container, consistently outperformed others in terms of plant growth, flowering, yield, quality, and economic viability. Regarding economics, white polythene bags yielded maximum gross returns and net profitability owing to lower cost of cultivation. They exhibited a very high benefit-cost ratio of 1.83, establishing white polythene bags as the most remunerative container for tomato cultivation. The study highlighted the significance of non-porous containers, particularly white polythene bags, in enhancing plant growth, quality parameters, and economic returns.
