Field trail was carried out at the farm unit, College of Agriculture, Hassan Karnataka during the year 2015 to study the effect of foliar application of calcium metalosate on growth and yield of tomato. The experiment consisted of 7 treatments viz., T1: Control, T2: Calcium metalosate @ 1 ml/l, T3: Calcium metalosate @ 2 ml/l, T4: Calcium metalosate @ 3 ml/l, T5: Calcium metalosate @ 4 ml/l, T6: Micnef @ 5 g/l and T7: Samras (amino acid mixture) @ 2 ml. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design and replicated thrice. Application of calcium metalosate at different concentration had significant influence on productivity of tomato. At harvest, application of calcium metalosate @ 4 ml/l (T5) recorded significantly higher plant height (126.08 cm), more number of leaves (52.80), number of branches per plant (16.10), total dry matter production (152.13 g plant-1), numbers of fruit per plant (32.15), Average weight of ten fruits (998.00 grams), keeping quality of fruits (33.66 mean value in days) and total yield (25.22 t ha-1) as compared to control (T1) which was on par with calcium metalosate @ 3 ml/l (T4).

Keywords: Calcium Metalosate, Growth, Total dry matter production, Fruit and Yield
