Abstract:

With the objective to find the association of different seed characters with fruit yield in cucumber, an experiment was conducted with 30 indigenous genotypes, collected from five different states, at the Experimental Farm of the Department of Vegetable Science, Dr YS Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan during Kharif, 2015. Results revealed that yield per plant had positive and significant association with all the seed characters under study viz., seed length, seed breadth, hundred seed weight, germination percentage, seed vigour index-I and seed vigour index-II. The success or failure of any crop production programme depends largely upon the potential and quality of the seed, which is regarded as the most important input in agriculture. From our results, it is suggested to carry out indirect selection for these seed traits in order to improve fruit yield in cucumber.
