Abstract : Tomato fruit edible berry of the plant is production value in the country. The lack of key plant nutrients was one of the reasons for the low tomato yield in Western Samar. This study was conducted and hypothesized the level of crab meal (CM) as a soil amendment enhances and improves the growth and yield of tomatoes, and evaluates the effect of CM soil properties. The pot experiment was laid out in a single factor which was arranged in RCBD with five treatments and replicated three times. The treatments include the following: T1 – Control; T2 – 25g CM + 10 kg soils-1; T3 – 50g CM + 10 kg soils-1; T4 – 75g CM + 10 kg soils-1; and T5 – 100g CM+ 10 kg soils-1. In contrast, the initial analysis of CM was found to have a high amount of available phosphorus (P), a high amount of exchangeable potassium (K), and a high amount of calcium (Ca) but had a low amount of nitrogen (N). The performance of tomato horticultural growth characteristics application of T2 was significantly (p <0.05) influenced by taller height, more leaves, wider leaves, and longer leaves; earlier-to-flower, fresher, and denser; and high yield. In conclusion, T2 (13.30 t/ha) application to tomatoes had a significant (p <0.05) effect on fruit yield.
