Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during 2016-17 at College of Agriculture, Indore to study the effect of Different Plant Growth Regulators on Growth, Yield and Quality Parameters in Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) under Polyhouse Condition. The treatment with GA3 100 ppm has recorded the maximum in Growth parameters viz., vine length (139.89 cm), number of leaves (59.46), number of branches (17.00), leaf area (293.28 cm) and whereas internodal distance has recorded the maximum in the treatment of NAA (50 ppm) and phenological parameters viz., average days taken to first flowering, days taken to 50% flowering and days taken to first picking was recorded in the treatment GA3 200 ppm (valued 34.46, 37.01 and 52.55, respectively) and sex ratio was maximum in the treatment NAA 100 ppm (valued 2.20:1). The maximum fruit set percentage and fruit retention percentage was maximum in treatment GA3 200ppm (valued 82.90 and 84.84, respectively). While other parameters like length of fruits, diameter of fruits, number of fruits per plant and fruit yield (q/ha) were maximum in the treatment GA3100 ppm (valued 22.36, 4.6, 9.24 and 178.67, respectively). Quality parameters like TSS maximum was recorded in the treatment GA3 200 ppm (valued 6.06).
