Abstract:

An investigation was conducted to study the effect of Pruning and Training systems on Cucumber cv. Malini grown under protected conditions. The whole experiment was arranged over 12 treatments consisting of 4 levels of Pruning, P1 (Removal of flower buds up to 45cm), P2 (Removal of flower buds up to 60cm), P3 (Removal of flower buds up to 75cm) and P4 (No Pruning). The characters like vine length, leaf area, days to first flowering, days to first harvest, number of fruits per vine, fruit length, fruit diameter etc. were significantly influenced by pruning systems. The significant differences for vine length and leaf area were observed among various treatments and P2 recorded high value for these characters which was at par with P3 and P1. P2 registered significantly highest number of fruits per plant (23.77), higher yield per vine and per hectare (6.40 kg and 141.68 t/ha) having statistically similar results with that of P3.
