A field trial was displayed in (1x1 Sq.M.) micro plots during winter season (2008-09 and 2009-10) to study effect of neem product Bioneem and nitrogenous fertilizer (Urea) on growth, dry matter no. of tomato fruits, yield and nutrients availability. Experiment was conducted in factorial randomized block design (RBD) by varying levels of Bioneema (viz., B0 (control), B3, (20 Kgha-l ), B2 (40 Kgha-l ), and B1 (60 Kgha-1 ) and Nitrogen N. (Control) N, (50 Kgha-1 ) and N2 (100 Kghal-1 ). It is quite obvious that treatment B2N1 (40 kg Bioneema + 50 Kghn N) through Urea brought about significant improvement in height, No of branches of tomato plants at various successive stages in (2008-09 and 2009-2010) at 90 DAT where B3N, (T10) significantly enhanced the no. of branches. It is further revealed that treatment Ts (B2N) registered a tremendous increase in Drymatter % in first year while T10 (B3N0) showed better result in second year. Likewise T12(B3N2) significantly increased the no. of fruits while T11 (B3N1) enhanced in second year. The Treatment T9 (B2N2) responded well in enhancing the fruit yield in first year whereas T3 (B0N2) improved the fruit yield (5-11 Kg. per plot). The uptake of nutrients i.e. N, Protein, P, Mg and Fe contents in general influenced significantly by bioneema and nitrogenous fertilizer (Urea). The uptake of nutrients was virtually higher in tomato plants of B2N2 and B3N1treatments in first year than that of second year. It is inferred from the foregoing observations that less amount of N fertilizer along with Neem product is quite beneficial for plants growth, yield as well as disease resistance.
