Abstract:
The Abhinav variety recorded the highest fruit diameter (5.44 cm), fruit weight (116.41g) and fruit yield per hectare (119.78 tonnes). Planting density at 60 cm x 60 cm (S2) recorded significantly the highest fruit diameter (5.42 cm) and fruit weight (1123.98 g) followed by 75 cm x 40 cm (S3) (5.35 cm) (114.04 g). The lowest fruit diameter (5.21 cm) and fruit weight (106.51 g) was recorded by the planting density at 120 cm x 40 cm (S3). Application of 180N: 90P: 90K kg per ha (F3) recorded the highest fruit diameter (5.37 cm), fruit weight (107.55g) and fruit yield per hectare (131.61 tonnes) followed by 150N: 75P: 75K kg per ha (F2). The lowest fruit diameter (5.27 cm), fruit weight (106.21g) and fruit yield per hectare (87.76 tonnes) was recorded by the application of 120N: 60P: 60K kg per ha (F1). Among interaction combinations, the highest fruit weight was recorded by the combination of variety Abhinav + 60 cm x 60 cm (S2) + 180N: 90P: 90K kg per ha (142.86 g).
