A two years trial was conducted to study the performance of Lycopersicon esculentum under poplar based agroforestry system in subtropics of Jammu (J&K) at agroforestry research farm, Chatha of Sher-e-Kashmir University of agricultural sciences and technology of Jammu. Trial was conducted under 5 year’s old plantation of poplar, to find out the growth and yield of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum). Tomato was grown in open as well as under shade of poplar trees with five treatments T1: RDF of NPK, T2: 50%N+50%N through FYM, T3: 100% N through FYM, T4: 50%N+50%N through VC, T5: 100% N through VC. Significant affect of shade and fertilizer treatments was recorded on the growth and yield of Tomato under poplar. The tomato yield was reduced under shade of poplar in comparison to open. Highest growth and yield was recorded in treatment T1 (Recommended dose of NPK).
