Performance of Open Pollinated Tomato (Lycopersicum esculantum Mill) Varieties at Humbo Larena, Wolaita Zone

Birhanu Lencha


A field experiment was conducted during the 2014/2015 cropping season a site called Humbo Larena, Wolaita Zone. Therefore, these research main objectives to evaluate the performance of tomato varieties and select relatively high yielder with acceptable quality. Ten open pollinated tomato varieties were tested along with Melka Sala and Marglob as a standard check in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) in 2014 and 2015 under irrigation. The result indicated that treatments differ significantly both horticultural parameter and yield except days to 50 % flowering across cropping years. Accordingly, Woyno was recorded the highest total yield 41.18 t ha-1 followed by Cochero and Miya 36.24, and 35.33 t ha-1 respectively with statistically non-significant yield difference among them. Therefore, these three varieties are recommended for Humbo Larena and round irrigation command area and similar agro-ecologies.
