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 physico – chemical parameters,” 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 (0 ppm, 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 number of seeds and maximum non reducing sugar was recorded with treatment GA3 at 750 ppm, whereas in case of time of seed soaking maximum diameter of fruit, maximum thickness of pulp, maximum non reducing and total sugar was recorded with S1 treatments. Over all treatment combination G3S2 (GA3 750 ppm, 24 hours seed soaking) found to be beneficial.
