Abstract

An experiment was conducted at the Department of Vegetable Science, CSAUAT- Kanpur to investigate the role of plant spacing and pruning in economics of production of indeterminate variety of tomato in polyhouse rabi season 2023-2024.The variety under observation is NS4266 .Although cultivation under polyhouse condition is capital intensive process but it is also highly remunerative. The experiment is conducted in randomized block design with four treatment and four replication. Pruning under single stem is best over all the other treatments and is comparative to double stem and triple stem in some cases. Single stem has prolonged market period and highly sustainable in nature.

Keywords: Economics, cost of cutivation, variable cost, pruning
