The study was conducted in South Gujarat for examining the production economics of tomato in the study area. Multistage random sampling technique was employed for the selection of 120 tomato farmers from Kaparada, Mandvi and Vyara talukas of Valsad, Surat and Tapi district, respectively. The net income of 1.57 lakh/ha showed the economic viability of the crop in the study area with a high output-input ratio of 3.25. It was suggested that the timely supply of credit and crop insurance scheme could further encourage growers for tomato production.
