Abstract:
Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum MILL.) is one of the most known and widely grown vegetables in the world. It is a valuable component of human diet with high content of important nutrients like β-carotene, lycopene and vitamin C. In Ethiopia, tomato is one of the most popular vegetables produced by small farmers and commercial growers for both local uses as well as processing industries. In the present experimental study, we evaluated some tomato genotypes in field conditions in order to determine superior genotypes for yield and yield component traits. The experiment was conducted at two locations. The experimental lay out adopted was the simple lattice design which was replicated two (2) times. Each experimental plot contained incomplete block size of 4m x 4m in 4 rows. Plants in a row were separated by a space of 30cm while the spacing between the rows was 100 cm. Distance of 1.5m was maintained between blocks and 3m between replications. The combined analysis of variance showed significant (p
