Abstract:

The present study was carried out at Horticulture Research Centre of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture and Technology, Meerut during 2018. Total ten treatments were tried in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications to study the effect of integrated nutrient management on growth, yield and quality of Cucumber. Out of these, an application of 75% RDF + 12.5 % FYM + 12.5 % VCha-1 was found significantly superior in terms of growth, yield and quality  parameters i.e. vine length (cm), number of leaves plant-1, number of primary branches plant-1, length and width of leaf (cm), days taken to first fruit formation (days), number of fruits plant-1, length and width of fruit at edible maturity (cm), weight of fruit at edible maturity (g), fruit yield plant-1 (kg), fruit yield plot-1(kg), total fruit yield (qha-1), TSS (0Brix)and peel thickness (cm) as compared to control and other applied treatment. Overall the impact of above observation, the highest yield (148.88 qha-1) of green tender fruits was recorded with a combined dose of different organic and inorganic sources of nutrients like 75% RDF + 12.5 % FYM + 12.5 % VCha-1 and minimum yield (93.33 qha-1) of green tender fruits was observed under control.
