Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on bottle gourd at Research Farm of the Department of Vegetable Science, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. The experiment was laid out in split plot design keeping plant spacing and nitrogen in main plots and varieties in sub-plots comprising 16 treatment combinations viz., two plant spacing, i.e., 60cm (P1) and 75cm (P2), four nitrogen levels, i.e., 50 kg/ha (N1), 62.5 kg/ha (N2), 75 kg/ha (N3) and 87.5 kg/ha (N4) and two cultivars, i.e., GH-22 (V1) and HBGH-35 (V2). The significantly highest total fruit yield (378.0 q/h) was obtained in treatment T15 sown at 60cm spacing received 87.5 kg nitrogen/ha over total fruit yield of treatment T13 (360.5 q/h). The highest net returns (Rs.1,27,227/ha) was obtained from hybrid in treatment T15 which was 5.3% more over highest net returns (Rs.1,20,502/ha) of conventional variety in treatment T13. Hence, from the findings, recommendation of treatment T15 (N4V2P1) is done as it was most productive as well as economically viable.
