The field experiment was conducted in the Horticultural farm of Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Dhaka, Bangladesh during the period from October 2013 to March 2014. Two factors were used in the experiment, viz. factor A: four types of organic manure such as M0= Control, M1 = Cow dung (20 t/ha), M2 = Poultry manure (16 t/ha) and M3 = Vermi compost (14 t/ha) and factor B: three varieties such as V1 = BARI tomato 15, V2 = BARI tomato 14 and V3 = BARI tomato 2. The experiment was laid out in Randomized complete Block Design with three replications. In case of shelf life three storage conditions were used, such as open at room temperature 24 0C, perforated polythene bag in room temperature 24 0C and refrigerator in 10 0C with both in half ripe and full ripe conditions. The height shelf life was found when tomato was kept in refrigerator in 10 0C in half ripe (23.80 days) and lowest (1.00 days) from open room temperature 24 0C in full ripe condition.
