A field experiment with 4 row spacings (60, 80, 100 and 120 cm) and 3 planting (Sole Krish, Sole Shivalika and Mixed) systems on tomato cv. Krish (Indeterminate) and Shivalika (Determinate) were laid out in Randomized Block Design (Factorial) with three replications. The results revealed that the 60 cm spacing and (50 % Krish + 50 % Shivalika) planting system in individual and interaction responded better with respect to fruit yield per unit area, harvest duration and economic returns due to greater crop biomass productions.
