Many factors limiting tomato production in open field conditions. A field investigation was under taken to optimize the planting window and cultivar during kharif 2019 at Agriculture Research Institute, Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agriculture University, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad to realize the higher productivity of tomato. The experiment was carried out with dates of planting (02 Jul, 12 Jul, 22 Jul, 02 Aug, 11 Aug, 23 Aug, 03 Sep and 13 Sep) as main plot treatment and cultivars US 440 & TO-3251 (Saaho) as sub plot treatment. The study revealed that 02 Jul planting recorded significantly higher fruit yield of 69.5 t ha-1 with more plant height (95 cm), number of branches plant-1(35.8), LAI (1.84) number of fruits plant-1 (41.3) and number of fruits m-2(153.1)and this was on par with 13 Sep (66.8 t ha-1) and 12 Jul (61.5 t ha-1) plantings over rest of the dates of planting. Even though the cultivars did not differ significantly cultivar US 440 produced more fruit yield (45.8 t ha-1) over TO-3251(41.0 t ha-1).
