The experiment was conducted at the RARS, Jamalpur during rabi 2019-2020 to find out the suitable planting time and increase production and economic return. Tomato variety viz. V1 = BARI Tomato-14, V2 = Udyan were considered as factor A and five sowing dates viz. S1 = 25 August, S2 = 15 September, S3 = 05 October, S4 = 25 October, S5 = 15 November considered as factor B. The experiment was laid out in RCBD (Factorial) with three replications. The yield of tomato was significantly affected by different sowing dates and tomato verities. Udyan and BARI Tomato-14 with 25 October combination and 05 October combination were suitable combinations for maximum yield of tomato. These combinations may be profitable in case of early growing, proper market price, seeds were available for planting, less infestation of virus and bacterial wilt.
