Abstract:

Field experiments were conducted during successive seasons of 2015 and 2016 to study the effect of different sources of organic nutrients on growth, yield and quality of muskmelon var. RM-50. Results strongly showed that the addition of organic manure viz., FYM @ 100 q/ha + vermicompost @ 25 q/ha + biofertilizer (T10) significantly increased the number of vines/ plant at last harvest (4.84), fruit weight (823.97 g), fruit diameter (12.46 cm), flesh thickness (2.20 cm) and marketable fruits/ plant (4.10) which were at par with FYM @ 100 q/ha + vermicompost @ 25 q/ha (T7). Marketable fruit yield/ plant (3.43 kg), marketable fruit yield/ ha (235.54 q) and TSS (11.43%) were increased significantly by FYM @ 100 q/ha + vermicompost @ 25 q/ha + biofertilizer (T10) over all other treatments. Incorporation of neem cake @ 5 q/ha + biofertilizer (T6) resulted in minimum incidence of wilt (7.40%) followed by neem cake @ 5 q/ha (T3) with 7.91% incidence in pooled data.
