Abstract:

Ten treatment combinations comprising of two varieties (V1- Akra Tinda and V2-Tinda Ludhiana) and five nutrient levels (N1-0:0:0 NPK kg/ha+15t FYM q/ha, N2- 30:20:15 NPK kg/ha+15t FYM q/ha, N3-40:30:25 NPK kg/ha+15t FYM q/ha, N4- 60:40:35 NPK kg/ha+15t FYM q/ha, N5-80:50:45 NPK kg/ha+15t FYM q/ha) were evaluated in factorial randomized block design with three replications at vegetable research farm, College of Horticulture, Mandsaur during Kharif season 2018-19. The findings of the present study revealed that among the varieties of round melon, V2 (Tinda Ludhiana) recorded superior performance for growth and yield attributes as well as yield and gross income, net income and B:C ratio. There was significant effect of nutrient levels on growth and yield parameters as well as NPK content in plant and fruit. Application of N4 (60-40-35 NPK kg/ha +15t FYM q/ha) showed highest growth attributes, earliest female flower appearance and fruit picking as well as yield attributes and yield in  round melon. Economic evaluation of different nutrient levels revealed highest gross income, net income and B:C ratio with application of N4 (NPK-60-40-35 kg/ha+15t FYM q/ha). Besides, highest NPK content in plant and fruit was recorded with application of N4 (60-40-35 NPK kg/ha +15t FYM q/ha). Post-harvest analysis of NPK in soil revealed significant effect of varieties and nutrient levels on available NPK content in soil. Highest available NPK in soil were determined with variety V1 (Arka Tinda). Post-harvest available NPK in soil were estimated highest with N5 (80:50:45 NPK kg/ha+15t FYM q/ha) which was significantly superior over all other nutrient levels.
