Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the influence of different protected conditions on growth and yield of parthenocarpic cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) hybrids to standardize the suitable growing condition for protected cultivation of parthenocarpic cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) hybrids at Hi-Tech Horticulture Unit, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad during the year 2016-17. The experiment was laid out in Complete Randomized Block Design with factorial concept comprised of three protected structures, viz., Naturally Ventilated Polyhouse (C1), 35 per cent shade house (C2) and 50 per cent shade house (C3) and two parthenocarpic cucumber hybrids, viz., KPCH-1 (V1) and Bahar (V2). The results indicated a significant difference in all the vegetative growth and yield parameters studied. The maximum vine length (217.42 cm), leaf area (309.00 cm2) and leaf area index (4.96) was recorded in polyhouse (C1), whereas highest number of nodes per vine (37.12), relative chlorophyll content (45.56 SPAD), fruit length (16.49 cm), fruit weight (158.83 g), per cent fruit set (79.77), number of fruits per vine (30.53), yield per vine (4.85 kg), yield per square meter (21.53 kg) and yield per hectare (206.98 t/ha) were recorded in 50 per cent shade house (C3). Among two hybrids, maximum vine length (192.67 cm), leaf area (306.13 cm2) and leaf area index (4.96), number of nodes per vine (36.33), fruit length (17.36 cm), fruit weight (164.13 g), per cent fruit set (73.44), number of fruits per vine (73.83), yield per vine (4.62 kg), yield per square meter (20.55 kg) and yield per hectare (199.91 t/ha) were recorded in hybrid Bahar. Interaction between growing conditions and hybrids has no significant influence on growth and yield characters except fruit weight; maximum fruit weight was recorded by hybrid Bahar in C3.
