TEMPERATURE: The optimum temperature for germination ranges from 18 C to 26 C. Proper color formation takes place at 26 C to 32 C. When the temperature exceeds 35 C or goes down to 15.50 C there is 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 well-drained, fairly light, fertile, organic matter rich with a fair soil water holding capacity is ideal. For an early crop, 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 the vine and dropping off the blossoms. During the 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 the need of the crop. Irrigation at the flowering and fruiting stage is imperative for higher quality yields.
ISOLATION: Maintain isolation distance of 50 m for foundation seed and 25 m for certified seed between two varieties. Though tomato is a self-pollinated crop, 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 a drier. Drying of seeds up to 10-12 percent moisture can be easily done in the sun. In the drier, it may be done up to 7 or 8 percent moisture. Storing of seeds is done with 8-10 percent moisture in a container of moisture-vapor proof.
