Abstract

Tomato is mostly used as fresh vegetable and very little (<1%) in processed form. Hence, breeding tomato varieties suitable for processing is very essential. The early breeding efforts developed varieties, but now they do not meet the industrial standards. Recently, two hybrids have been developed by ICAR-II HR, Bengaluru, and some new improved lines, bred by WVC, Taiwan, have been imported to India by ICAR-II VR for research purpose. There is a need to deploy multi-dimensional approach to address research, operational and industry related issues to benefits farmers and industry.
