Abstract:

The experiment on yield improvement in cucumber through integrated nutrient management practices was conducted in a randomised block design with three replications under All India Coordinated Research Project on Vegetable Crops at Central Research Station OUAT, Bhubaneswar. Application of half rec. NPK + FYM @ 10 t/ha + Vermi @ 2 t/ha + Biofertilizer (4.0 kg Azotobacter/ha+ 4.0 kg PSB/ha) i.e. T11 had the greatest impact on fruit weight invariably in all the experimental years. T11 recorded average fruit weight of 174.84 g, 180.45 g and 171.40 g during 2014, 2015 and 2016 respectively. From pooled data (Table 6) over three years it was observed that amongst the treatments T11 recorded the highest yield (105.44 q/ha) whereas the lowest yield was recorded in T2 (56.70 q/ha). From the present investigation it may be suggested that application of half rec. NPK + FYM @ 10 t/ha + Biofertilizers (4.0 kg Azotobacter/ha + 4.0 kg PSB/ha) i.e., T8 was the best integrated nutrient management practice to be followed.
