Abstract:
An experiment entitled “Effect of growing media and micronutrients on growth, yield and quality of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) under polyhouse condition” was carried out during kharif season 2017 at Department of Horticulture, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner. The experiment consisted twelve treatment combinations with three growing media (garden soil, garden soil + FYM, garden soil + vermicompost and four foliar spray of micronutrients in Completely Randomized Design with three replications. Growing of cucumber with garden soil 18 kg/bag + vermicompost 2 kg/bag and foliar spray of boron 0.5 % + calcium 0.5% significantly improved all the growth parameters (plant height, number of green leaves per plant, number of nodes per plant, stem diameter, total number of pickings), yield attributes (number of fruits per plant, av. fruit weight, fruit yield per plant, fruit yield per 1000 m2 area.
