Abstract:
The present experiment was carried out during June to September, 2018 in Research Field of Department of Horticulture, SHUATS, Prayagraj. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design (RBD), with nine treatments, replicated thrice of organic and inorganic fertilizers. the treatments were T0 (Control (Recommended dose of NPK 150:75:75 kg/ha)), T1 (Neem Cake 75% + NPK 25%), T2 (Neem Cake 50% + NPK 50%), T3 (Vermicompost 75% + NPK 25%), T4 (Vermicompost 50% + NPK 50%), T5 (Sheep Manure 75% + NPK 25%), T6 (Sheep Manure 50% + NPK 50%), T7 (Vermicompost 50% + Sheep Manure 25% + NPK 25%) and T8 (Vermicompost 25% + Sheep Manure 25% + Neem Cake 25% + NPK 25%). From the present experimental findings it is found that the treatment T8 Vermicompost (25%) + Sheep Manure (25%) + Neem Cake (25%) + NPK (25%)) was found superior over other treatments in terms of growth, yield and Quality of Cucumber, followed by treatment T7 (Vermicompost (50%) +Sheep Manure (25%) + NPK (25%)), in terms of economics maximum Gross return, Net Return and Cost Benefit ratio was also recorded in treatment T8 and lowest readings was recorded in T3 (Vermicompost (75%) + NPK (25%)).
