Effect of different media on growth of cucumber under green-house conditions


Shiva Prasad Pogaku


The objective of this study was to determine the effects of media on plant height, stem length and diameter, no. of nodes per plant, no. of pickings, no. of fruits, average weight of fruit, fruit yield per plant. In the protective crop production of the cucumber various treatments are being tested and applied on the cucumber growth under the green house conditions. Various treatments of medias includes – Garden soil, Garden soil + FYM (1:1), Garden soil+ Vermi compost (1:1), Garden soil + Cocopeat (1:1), Garden soil + FYM+ Coco peat + Vermi compost (1:1:1:1). All the medias effects are tested under the protected greenhouse conditions. The experimental readings are taken for every 20 days span. The results of the study showed that mixture media significantly increased length, diameter and weight of fruit in all the medias.
