ABSTRACT
The field trials were conducted to study the effect of BGA on the growth and yield of Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) cultivar Phule Raja (RTH2). In all eight treatments (T1- Nostoc calcicola extract, T2- Lyngbya majuscula extract, T3- Scytonema millei extract, T4- Oscillatoria subbrevis extract , T5- Bioforce, T6- Amruta (19:19:19), T7- Recommended dose (NPK) and T8- Control) were applied through foliage at pre-flowering, flowering and post-flowering stages. The results of field trials that application of Nostoc calcicola and Scytonema millei extracts recorded highest plant height, number of branches, number of leaves, leaf area, plant spread, number of flowers, 50% flowering, number of fruits and crop yield (693.99 q/ha) as compared to the commercial fertilizers. The control (unspread) recorded lowest plant growth and crop yield (289.26 q/ha). The use of BGA extracts proved as an efficient alternative to the conventional chemical fertilizers.

Key words : BGA, Biofertilizer, Extract, Tomato.
