The study was conducted at the Teaching and Research Farm of the Federal College of Education Pankshin, Plateau State Nigeria during 2014 under irrigation regime. The trial was established to study Agronomic characteristic and yield response of three cultivars of tomato treated with two sources and three levels of fertilizers; the experimental design was a 6x3x2 factorial fitted to randomized complete block design (RCBD) replicated three times & to give a total of eighteen sub plots. NPK 15:15:15 and pig dung are the two sources of fertilizers applied at 3 levels each as treatment (3x2=6). The agronomic characteristics studied were: plant height, leaf number, stems number, number of flower, number of fruit and fruit weight. NPK and Pig dung used significantly increased plant height, number of leaf, fruit number and fruit weight (P>0.05) while there was no significant difference on number of stem and flower at (0.05) level of significance respectively. (P< 0.05).
