RESPONSIS OF BIO-FERTILIZER AGAINST GROWTH AND YIELD OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF Solanum lycopersicum
The present research work is based on the effect of bio-fertilizer on development and productivity of the tomato as the most commercially important crop across the map. Tomato seeds were collected from NARC (National Agriculture and Research Center) and inoculated with biofertilizer. Two groups of seeds were inoculated and controlled experiment was performed. The emergence of seedling, flowering and fruiting occurred at different time in different varieties. These varieties of seeds of tomato
were used mainly grouped into two categories one group as inoculated while other as control group. Seed germination occurred after 7 days of sowing. After 120 days plants were matured. The result of this experiment showed that seeds inoculated with biofertilizer increased growth charateristics and production of tomato varieties whereas Nadar is declared a good variety of tomato with maximum increased growth and productivity when inoculated with biofertilizer. It showed maximum shoot length (66 cm). Other two varieties Roma and Piogrande also showed higher shoot length (56 cm, 55 cm) respectively. It was observed that the inoculated varieties indicated more leaves number, flowers number and fruits. Length of plants, leaves width, roots enlargement and the size of fruits were also increased as comparison to control. It was concluded that biofertilizers increased the growth and productivity of tomato varieties that have better potential and good alternative source for better growth of commercially important tomato varieties.
