Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted during 2015-2016 at Hi-Tech Horticulture Unit, Department of Horticulture, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur to study the effect of different levels of spacing and training on growth and yield of cucumber under polyhouse. The experiment was laid out following factorial completely randomized design (CRD) with three replications. The experiment was comprising of total twelve treatment combinations of four level of spacing viz. 45×20 cm (S1), 45×30 cm (S2), 45×45 cm (S3) and 45×60 cm (S4) with three level of training viz. T1 (removal of all branches up to 45 cm stem height), T2 (up to 90 cm stem height) and T3 (up to 135 cm stem height). Spacing S4 was best in regards to vegetative and yield attributing traits. The maximum numbers of fruit per vine (40.19), fruit weight (119.69 g), yield per vine (4.74 kg) were recorded in S4. Among the treatments of training, T1 was superior resulting in maximum numbers of fruit per vine (38.17), fruit weight (118.04 g) and yield per m2 (17.71 kg). Maximum total yield per vine (4.97 kg) was recorded in treatment combination S4T3 (45x60 cm and up to 135 cm stem height). The highest net return (Rs. 41405.2 per 1000 square meter) and benefit: cost ratio (1.60) was recorded for treatment S1T1 (45x20 cm and up to 45 cm stem height).
