Abstract:

The present investigation entitled, “Response of muskmelon (Cucumis melo L.) cv. Durgapur Madhu to different levels of gibberellic acid and time of seed soaking on yield yield parameters and economics,” was carried out from February to May 2013 in the summer season at Horticulture Instructional Farm, College of Horticulture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar. Experiment was laid out in randomized block design with factorial concept having four replications. There were five levels of GA3 (0ppm, 250 ppm. 500 ppm, 750 pm and 1000 ppm) with two soaking periods 16 and 24 hours. There was treatment combinations altogether ten. The results revealed that maximum fruit set per cent, maximum number of fruit per plant, maximum yield of fruit per plant was recorded with treatment GA3 at 750 ppm, whereas in case of time of seed soaking maximum fruit set per cent, minimum days taken for first harvest, maximum average weight of fruit was recorded with S1 treatments. Over all treatment combination G3S2 (GA3 750 ppm, 24 hours seed soaking) found to be beneficial.


Keywords: Muskmelon, GA3, Yield, Yield parameters and Economics.
