In other to study the effects of salicylic acid on yield quantity and quality of tomato, an experiment was carried out based on randomized complete blocks design with four replications at research center of Shirvan Agricultural Faculty in 2011. Foliar application of five concentrations of salicylic acid (0, 10-2, 10-4, 10-6, 10-8 M) were used. Results showed that application of salicylic acid affected tomato yield and quality characters of tomato fruits so that tomato plants treated with salicylic acid 10-6 M significantly had higher fruit yield (3059.5 g per bush) compared to non-treated plants (2220 g per bush) due to an increase in the number of bunch per bush. Results also indicated that application of salicylic acid significantly improved the fruit quality of tomato. Application of salicylic acid increased the amount of vitamin C, lycopene, diameter of fruit skin and also increased rate of pressure tolerance of fruits. Fruit of tomato plants treated with salicylic acid 10-2M significantly had higher vitamin C (32.5 mg per 100 g of fruit fresh weight) compared to non treated plants (24 mg per 100g fruit fresh weight). Salicylic acid concentration 10-2 M also increased the diameter of fruit skin (0.54 mm) more than two fold compared to control (0.26 mm). Fruit Brix index of tomato plants treated with salicylic acid 10-2M significantly increased (9.3) compared to non-treated plants (5.9). These results suggest that foliar application of salicylic acid may improve quantity and quality of tomato fruits.
