The field experimental study was carried out under naturally ventilated polyhouse during winter season at plasticulture farm of CTAE, Udaipur to study the influence of irrigation and fertigation level on growth & yield attributes of cucumber. The experiment consisted of 9 treatment combination with 3 replication in randomized block design. The treatments include 3 irrigation levels viz. 100 %, 80% and 60 % ET through drip and 3 levels of fertilizer application viz. 125%, 100%,75% RDF of N,P,K through fertigation. The effects of different treatments recorded the significant effect on growth and yield attributes of cucumber. Maximum average plant height (399.27 cm), days to 50% flowering (30.67), days to first harvest (42.67), average length of fruit (15.92cm), average diameter of fruit (3.98 cm)were reported in treatment T5(drip irrigation with 80% ETc and fertigation at 100% RDF) as compared to other treatments. However maximum individual weight of fruit (133.03 gm), number of fruit per plant (34.80), Maximum yield of fruit (132.62tonne/ha) were observed in T5 treatment respectively. Also higher O: I ratio (2.65:1) was observed in T5treatment and minimum (1.6:1) under T9 treatment. By considering all the aspects treatment T5was observed best among all other treatments.

Keywords: Naturally ventilated polyhouse, cucumber, irrigation and fertigation level, growth, yield attributes
