Abstract: Exposure of 0.2 mT magnetic field (MF) to tomato seeds is known to increase germination, growth, and resistance of plants to Fusarium sp. In this study, the germination and growth of F1 tomato seeds were tested after reinfection with Fusarium oxysporum f.sp.lycopersici (Fol). The study was arranged factorially in Completely Randomized Design (CRD). The first factor is F1 seed types consisting of 8 types: M0F0, M0F60, M7F0, M7F60, M11F0, M11F60, M15F0, and M15F60. The numbers after letter M and F indicate that F1 tomato seeds were obtained from parental tomato plants whose seeds were induced by exposure of 0.2 mTMF each for 0, 7’48”, 11’44”, and 15’36”and then infected by Fusarium sp. monospore suspension each for 0 and 60 minrespectively. The second factor is Fol infection. The data obtained were analyzed variance and followed by Fisher's Test at α = 5%.The results show that the parental tomato seeds induced by 0,2 mT MF produce F1 seeds that have a higher germination percentage and rate as well as dry weight than the parental tomato seeds of control although reinfected by Fol. These results suggest that the vigor properties of the F1 tomato seeds are the same as the vigor properties of the parental seeds. Keywords: F1 tomato seed type, germination rate, Fol, germination percentage, and dry weight.
