Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the “Effect of growing media and fertigation schedules on growth and yield of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) under polyhouse condition” during kharif season of 2016 at Department of Horticulture, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner. The growing media: garden soil 18 kg/bag + vermicompost 2 kg/bag + cocopeat 2 cm layer at top shows the increase in all growth characters (chlorophyll and number of days taken to first flower appearance), yield attributes [number of fruits per vine, average fruit weight and fruit yield per 1000 m2 (11.89 t)], quality attributes (TSS, ascorbic acid, N, P, K content in fruits). The treatment fertigation schedule at 2 days interval provide higher value for all growth characters (chlorophyll and number of days taken to first flower appearance), yield attributes [of fruits per vine, average fruit weight and fruit yield per 1000 m2 (9.75 t)], quality attributes (TSS, ascorbic acid, N, P, K content in fruits).
