Tomato yield per acre in kg

By planting 8000 tomato plants on 1 acre with a distance of 2.5 x 2.5 between 8,000 kgs to 12,000 kgs of tomatoes can be achieved. High-yielding tomato plants easily produce 8 to 10 kg of tomatoes in the summer season. With good care and proper fertilizer, these plants can produce 7 to 8 kg of tomatoes in winter and 4 to 5 kg of tomatoes in the rainy season as well. 

Normal variety plant produces between 1.5 kg to 2.5 kgs of tomatoes per plant and if you have planted around 6000 to 8000 plants then you can easily achieve 6000 plants x 1.5 kg = 9,000 kg or 8000 plants x 1.5 kg = 12000 kg tomatoes in one-acre land.

However, high-yielding plants can produce more tomatoes and one more benefit of high-yielding plants is you can achieve a high number of tomatoes by planting fewer plants. More importantly, pruning of tomato plants is necessary for better quality yield.

In the recent past, a new yield came into the market called brimato. It is a high-yielding variety developed by ICAR and the Indian research centre in Varanasi. A plant which can produce tomato and brinjal is called brimato. While breaking it technically bri = brinjal and mato = tomato. However, its farming is yet to start on a larger scale and you can try brimato on some areas of your land to achieve multiple yields.

By doing its cultivation you can generate more income but I suggest you get the practical knowledge before starting this cultivation on a wider scale. You can get practical knowledge or training by living at your place only. Yes, you can get most agriculture training at your region’s Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK). KVKs are government centres developed by the government to help farmers. Moreover, you can also get government land on rent from kvk centres but for agriculture purposes only.
