Abstract: Effect of <i>Kappaphycus alvarezii </i>sap (seaweed) on growth and yield of tomato was studied in field during <i>kharif </i>season of 2006-07. <i>K. alvarezii </i>sap, applied as a foliar spray (5.0%), increased yield of tomato fruit (60.89%) as compared to control plants sprayed with water, attributed to increase in number of fruits per plant and size of fruit. With application of sap, fruit quality and also macro (13.24-67.50%) and micro (23.84-42.61%) elements content increased over control. Nutrient uptake by fruit and shoot was improved with foliar application of <i>K. alvarezii </i>sap. Plants receiving foliar applications showed resistance to leaf curl, bacterial wilt and fruit borer.
