Abstract:

Field experiment was carried out at the orchard of Department of Vegetable Crops, Horticultural College and Research Institute, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore during 2010 - 2011to find out the effect of training and pinching on flowering characters of bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria M.) cv.CBgH1. The different types of pinching on secondary laterals were imposed up to 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th node and control (no pinching on secondary laterals) in the experiment. Among the treatments, pinching on secondary laterals at 6th node proved to be superior in respect to flowering characters. The highest number of female flowers per plant (20.4 & 20.6), was noted and days to first male appearance (32.2 & 32.3), days to first female appearance (45.1 & 44.6), node at first female appears (14.4 & 14.1), number of male flowers per vine (84.60 & 85.20) and sex ratio (4.15 & 4.14) were recorded significantly reduced in plants received pinching on secondary laterals at 6th node (T4).
