An experiment was conducted in the Horticulture farm of Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University during the period of December 2017 to February 2018. Eight Ready Mix Soil treatments, viz., T1= 50% Soil + 40% Vermi compost + 10% Cocodust + Dolomite 1.5 g/kg material + Bone meal powder 1.0  g/kg material + Mustard oil cake powder 1.0  g/kg material +  Trichoderma 0.2 g/kg material; T2= 50% Soil + 40% Vermi compost + 10% Cocodust + Dolomite 1.5 g/kg material + Bone meal powder 2.0  g/kg material + Mustard oil cake powder 2.0  g/kg material; T3= 50% Soil + 40% Vermi compost + 10% Cocodust + Dolomite 1.5 gm/kg material + Bone meal powder 3.0  g/kg material + Mustard oil cake powder 3.0  g/kg material; T4= 50% Soil + 40% Vermi compost + 10% Cocodust + Dolomite 1.5 g/kg material + Bone meal powder 1.0  g/kg material + Mustard oil cake powder 1.0  g/kg material (Without   Trico-derma)(T8) + Chemical fertilizer (Urea-2.45 g/kg material + TSP-0.82 g/kg material + MoP-1.25 g/kg material + Gypsum- 491 mg/kg material +Boric acid – 13 mg/kg material + Zinc-sulphate (mono-hydrate)-6.38 mg/kg material);T5= 50% Soil + 40% Vermi compost + 10% Cocodust + Dolomite 1.5 g/kg material + Bone meal powder 2.0  g/kg material + Mustard oil cake powder 2.0  g/kg material (T2) + Chemical fertilizer (Urea-2.45 g/kg material + TSP-0.82 g/kg material + MoP-1.25 g/kg material + Gypsum- 491 mg/kg material +Boric acid – 13 mg/kg material + Zinc-sulphate (mono-hydrate)-6.38 mg/kg material); T6= 45% Soil + 40% Vermi compost + 10% Cocodust + 5% Sand +Dolomite 1.5 g/kg material + Chemical fertilizer (Urea-2.45 g/kg material + TSP-0.82 g/kg material + MoP-1.25 g/kg material + Gypsum- 491 mg/kg material +Boric acid – 13 mg/kg material + Zinc-sulphate (mono-hydrate)-6.38 mg/kg material); T7= 45% Soil + 40% Vermi compost + 10% Cocodust + 5% Sand +Dolomite 1.5 g/kg material + Chemical fertilizer (DAP-0.82 g/kg material + MoP-1.25 g/kg material + Gypsum- 491 mg/kg material +Boric acid – 13 mg/kg material + Zinc-sulphate (mono-hydrate)-6.38 mg/kg material); (In this treatment P was applied from DAP; No additional N was applied) and T8= 50% Soil + 40% Vermi compost + 10% Cocodust + Dolomite 1.5 g/kg material + Bone meal powder 1.0  g/kg material + Mustard oil cake powder 1.0  g/kg material (Without Trichoderma); were used to investigate the growth, development, fruit quality, chlorophyll(%), fruit number, fruit weight, fruit length, fruit diameter, fruit weight and yield of a popular Bangladeshi Tomato cultivar “Roma VF” which was laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design with four replications. The Ready Mix Soil treatments were developed to see which treatment fulfill the need of Urban Rooftop Gardeners so that they do not have to worry about the nutrient management of crops and fulfill the demands of the rooftop gardeners.
