The present study was conducted in district Tando Allahyar Sindh to assess the economic analysis of tomato production and changes in socio-economic status of the farmers. Thus the tomato farmers in study area incurred that on an average per Farm spent a sum total fixed cost was 20900.00 Rs/acre in Hybrid tomato and total fixed cost was 20900.00 Rs/acre in Conventional tomato. Total fixed cost includes Land Rent, Land tax, and water charges and total variable costs for Hybrid tomato were (64420.00 Rs/Acre) while in conventional tomato the total variable costs ware (61620.00 Rs/Acre).  On an average higher yield was obtained in hybrid tomato 94.00 Mds /acre from Hybrid tomato while 76.00 Mds /acre average obtained by conventional tomato. As for prices concerned, the Hybrid and Conventional tomato growers received Rs. 1520.00/ Mds and Rs. 1480.00/ Mds respectively. Total revenue of tomato production was calculated and found that hybrid tomato growers received Rs. 142880.00/acre, while conventional tomato growers Rs. 112480.00 /acre.  The tomato growers in selected study area who cultivates Hybrid tomato obtained higher gross revenue (Rs.142880.00Per/acre), whereas gross margin of conventional tomato growers who seem to be lower (Rs. 112480.00Per/acre). The Net Return of tomato production was calculated and found that Hybrid tomato growers received higher Net Return which was (57560.00 Rs/acre), where as Net Return of Conventional tomato grower who seem to be lower (29960.00 Rs/acre). Therefore they availed in hybrid farms input output ratio of 1:1.67, cost benefit ratio of 1:0.67while 1:1.36 input output ratio and 1:0.36 from conventional tomato farmers in the study area.
