Abstract: A pot experiment was conducted at Horticulture farm, Department of Horticulture, Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Dhaka-1207, Bangladesh from October 2013 to March 2014 to study the performance of BARI tomato 14 to chicken eggshells powders. Eggshell viz. T1 (No eggshell); T2 (100 g pot eggshell) and T3 (200 g pot eggshell) were used on the experiment using Completely Randomized Design with five replications. Tallest plant (87.7 cm), maximum number of leaves (85.7 plant), number of branches (28.0 plant), number of harvested fruit (31.0 plant), single fruit weight (94.0 g), yield (3.1 kg plant) was found from T2 and maximum degree of brix (3.7 ), shelf life (13.8 days) from T3 whereas minimum was found from T1. Minimum number of calcium deficient symptom showing leaves (4.5 plant) and abnormal fruit (14.2 ) was also found from T2. Minimum chlorophyll content (45.2 ) and early flowering (54.3 days) was found from T3 which was statistically identical with T2. Eggshells are largely disposed of many bioactive compounds which can improve for the growth, yield and quality of tomato.
