Abstract:

 The present investigation was conducted during off season 2015 at the Research Farm of Department of Agricultural Engineering, College of Agriculture, CSKHPKV, Palampur, Himachal Pradesh to study the effect of different levels of spacing and training on growth and yield of hybrid cucumber under polyhouse. The experiment was laid out following factorial randomized block design (RBD) with three replications. The experiment was comprising of total 18 treatment combinations of two hybrids viz., Kian and Isetis, three level of spacing viz., 60×30 cm (S1), 60×45 cm (S2) and 60×60 cm (S3) with three level of training viz., T1 (removal of one shoot), T2 (removal of two shoots) and T3 (removal of three shoots). Hybrid Isetis was significantly superior over Kian with respect to vine length (261 cm), number of fruits per vine (26.8), fruit length (17.8 cm), fruit weight (173.53 g), harvest duration () and fruit yield per plant (3.68 kg) with maximum net returns (Rs. 28940.5) and benefit: cost ratio (2.34). Spacing S3 was best in regards to vegetative and yield attributing traits. Higher fruit length (17.0 cm), fruit breadth (6.2 cm), fruit weight (187.51 g), number of fruits per vine (27.2), total soluble solids (30brix), fruit yield per plant (3.97 kg) was observed in S3 and also it took lesser number of days for initiation of first female flower (14.17), lower nodal position of first female flower and days to first picking (33.9). Among the treatments of training, T1 was superior resulting in higher fruit length (16.7 cm), fruit breadth (6.0 cm), fruit weight (179.95 g). Maximum total yield per vine (4.96 kg) was recorded in treatment combination S3T3. The highest net return and benefit: cost ratio was recorded for hybrid Isetis with treatment S1T3.
