Tomato (Solanum Lycopersicum L.) belong to family solanaceae is one of the largest vegetable crop. A Field experiment was conducted at Mother Teresa College of Agriculture to study the effects of different seed extraction methods on seed quality parameters in Tomato. The extraction methods was taken to make different treatments (i.e,) T1-Manual Extraction, T2--HCl@10ml for 15mins, T3-HCl@10ml for 30mins, T4--Fermentation for 24hrs (1day), T5-Fermentation for 48hrs (2days), T6-Sodium carbonate 10% for 24hrs and T7-Sodium carbonate 10% for 48hrs. The result revealed that the significantly increased the Germination (%), Shoot length (cm), Root length (cm), Dry matter Production, Vigour Index-I and Vigour Index-II.

Keywords: Tomato, Seed Extraction Methods and Seed Quality Parameters
