Dear farmer , ( urbanjbp ),

Sir,  welcome to our farmers friendly  Forum.

The Arka Rakshak variety tomato , a determinate variety(semi), is released by IIHR, Hesargatta, Bengaluru, karnataka in the year 2010_11.

It is learnt from the IIHR authorities, it is a  very good high yielder, an and only, triple virus resistant variety in determinate open variety tomato hybrids, in the world.

It is brought to the notice of our Forum that a recorded yield of around 19 KGS per plant has recorded and I was also an eye witness.

This variety , Arka Rakshak, a determinate variety, don’t require any pruning.

Stalking and/or trellising is required to protect the branches to hold the weight of the yield.

It comes to a height of 3 to 5 ft, in ideal conditions and stalking/trellising system is a must.

With best wishes,    g.p.rao,    farmer
