Abstract:

Muskmelon crop flourishes well under warm climate for its cultivation and cannot tolerate frost condition, in order to grow muskmelon in irrespective of the season throughout the year and also to get a potential yield an attempt was made the performance of yellow melon var. Gladial, under different growing conditions viz., poly house and open condition at different levels of spacing. With five different treatments for the spacing levels and four replications under both the growing conditions was conducted. The parameters at ninety days after transplanting the longest vine (372.66 cm) in yellow melon was noticed when the plants were grown under the protected condition at 1.0 x 0.75 m level of spacing. Similarly, the highest number of shoots per vine (5.58), leaf area (373.79 cm2), number of leaves per vine (118.04), at various stages of crop growth was noticed at the same level of spacing. Under the open-field condition, longest vine (310.33 cm) in yellow melon at ninety days after transplanting was recorded when the plants were grown at 1.50 x 1.50 m level of spacing. The plants were grown under the protected condition at 1.0 x 0.75 m level of spacing took the least number of days.
