Hence, higher yield and quality of tomato hybrid seeds can be obtained under shade house condition compared open condition            The spacing 60 x 60 cm recorded significantly higher number of fruit set (71.1%), seed yield per plant (6.0 g), seed germination (92.3%) and seedling vigour index (1815) and spacing 60 x 45 cm recorded significantly higher seed yield per hectare (170.6kg).
