Abstract: The field experiment was conducted in the Horticultural farm of Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Dhaka, Bangladesh during the period from October 2013 to March 2014. Two factors were used in the experiment, viz. factor A: four types of organic manure such as M0= Control, M1 = Cow dung (20 t/ha), M2 = Poultry manure (16 t/ha) and M3 = Vermi compost (14 t/ha) and factor B: three varieties such as V1 = BARI tomato 15, V2 = BARI tomato 14 and V3 = BARI tomato 2. The experiment was laid out in Randomized complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. The maximum (49.64 kg/plot) yield was recorded from treatment combination of M2V1 while the treatment combination of M0V3 gave the minimum yield (18.00 kg/plot). The maximum yield (86.25 t/ha) was recorded from treatment combination of M2V1, while M0V3 gave the minimum (31.25 t/ha). So, poultry manure with BARI Tomato 15 may be used for tomato cultivation.
