Identification of stress tolerant tomato genotypes for north eastern hill ecosystem

Tomato genotypes (24 nos.) were evaluated for their relative germination rate (RGR), relative germination energy (RGE), relative germination index (RGI), relative vitality index (RVI) and relative PEG injury rate under in-vitro drought condition induced by application of PEG @ 30g/l of water. Apart from this, plants were also grown under elevated temperature and restricted irrigation condition. Arka Ananya and Arka Saurav were found to be tolerant to moisture stress during germination stage. Arka Rakshak, Arka Ananya, Arka Meghali, RC Manikhamenshinba-I, MCTR 4 and Megha Tomato-3 were found to be promising under elevated temperature and restricted irrigation.
