Shine Brand seeds provides red with green shoulder , flat round in shape, determinate , sour taste, after transplanting , tolerant to virus and disease. Showing time -All Maturity of fruit 55-60 days.
TEMPERATURE : The optimum temperature for germination ranges from 180 C to 260 C. Proper colour formation takes place at 260 C-320 C. When temperature exceeds 350 C or goes down to 15.50 C there is a significant inhibition of ripening. It cannot be grown successfully in regions of higher Rainfall.
SOIL : The tomato grows on all types of soils from light sandy to heavy clay. Soil which is welldrained, fairly light, fertile, organic matter rich with a fair soil water holding capacity is ideal. For early crop, a sandy loam soil is the best. Tomato does well in soil reaction from pH 6.0 to 7.0. It is moderately tolerant to acid soils (pH 5.5).
IRRIGATION : The irrigation should be so arranged that the soil remains moderately moist. Excessive irrigation induces the plant to vine and dropping off the blossoms. During summer season, irrigation at every 3 to 4 days interval is necessary, whereas for winter and spring season crop 10 to 15 days interval is sufficient. Subsequent irrigations are given according to need of the crop. Irrigation at flowering and fruiting stage is imperative for higher quality yields.
ISOLATION : Maintain isolation distance of 50 m for foundation seedand 25 m for certified seed between two varieties. Though tomato is self pollinated crop but a certain percentage of cross-pollination has been reported.
DRYING AND STORAGE : On small scale seed production, the drying of seeds can be done in the sun whereas on large scale it is done in drier. Drying of seeds up to 10-12 per cent moisture can be easily done in the sun. In the drier, it may be done up to 7 or 8 per cent moisture. Storing of seeds is done with 8-10 per cent moisture in container of moisture-vapor proof.
