Abstract:
An experiment was conducted during<em> kharif</em>, 2017 in polyhouse, Department of Agriculture, Mata Gujri College, Fatehgarh Sahib to study the effect of different level of fertigation on growth, and fruit yield of cucumber (<em>Cucumis sativus </em>L.). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with seven fertigation treatments <em>viz. </em>T<sub>1 </sub>- 120% RDF, T<sub>2 </sub>- 110% RDF, T<sub>3 </sub>- 100% RDF, T<sub>4 </sub>- 90% RDF, T<sub>5 </sub>- 80% RDF, T<sub>6 </sub>- 70% RDF and T<sub>7 </sub>- Control. The treatments were replicated thrice. On the basis of results summarized that maximum plant height (cm), days to first flowering, days to 50% flowering, days to first picking, number of primary branches, harvest duration (days) and harvest index (%) were recorded with the application of 100% RDF (T<sub>3</sub>) which was statistically at par with application of 110% RDF (T<sub>2</sub>)<em> </em>and yield attributes <em>viz</em>. average fruit weight (g), number of fruits per plant, fruit diameter (cm), fruit length (cm), fruit yield per plant (kg) and fruit yield per hectare (t) with application of 100% RDF (T<sub>3</sub>). Thus, drip fertigation helped to improve the cucumber plant growth and fruit yield, particularly the composition 100% RDF/ha compared to others.
