In India, the production of Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) varies every season and their market price also fluctuated. S. lycopersicum plants are self-pollinated. Pollination is an important ecological interaction and the first step for the sexual reproduction. Tomatoes Blossom and flower drop is a serious effect of the environmental factors. The present study was carried out during the monsoon season (October – December 2017) to the evaluate influence of abiotic factors on the production of tomato in Namakkal district, Tamil Nadu, India. During monsoon season the production of tomato was severely affected by various abiotic factors. The influence of maximum temperature has a positive correlation with tomato flower blossom and flower drop. Rainfall, Relative Humidity, and Wind have negative correlation the flower blossom and flower drop.
