To investigate the effect of irrigation volume and nutrient consumption on yield and yield components of cherry tomatoes, a greenhouse experiment was conducted as split plots in a completely randomized design. The results showed that the maximum plant height, stem diameter, number of fruits per plant, fruit yield per harvest, total fruit yield, and shoots dry weight were obtained in the treatment of 20 liters of water per square meter per day with nutrient solution application of micronutrients with concentrations of one and a half times the Hoagland solution. The highest water use efficiency obtained from the treatments of 15 and 20 liters of water per square meter per day and consumption of nutrient solution one and a half times the concentration of micronutrients in Hoagland solution with averages of 6.55 and 6.10 g final yield of fresh fruit each plant per liter of water consumption per plant, respectively. Correlation coefficients between the traits also showed a positive and significant relationship between total fruit yield with all studied traits, so that the highest correlation (r = 0.93) had with trait of number of fruits per plant and the lowest correlation (r = 0.7) had with trait of stem diameter.
