Abstract:
Seed treatment is one of the key techniques for improvement of crop performance in several crops. In the present study, seed treatment with ZnSO4 and FeSO4 and foliar spray of Ethrel was explored for improving vegetative and reproductive parameters in cucumber crop. The seed material comprised of single seed lot of cucumber var. Pusa Barkha, which was treated with ZnSO4 (50, 75ppm) and FeSO4 (100, 125 ppm) and foliar spray of Ethrel (100, 200, 300 ppm), at 2-4 true leaf stage. All the treatments have improved the vegetative and reproductive parameters in cucumber; however highest improvement was observed for Zn (75 ppm) followed by Ethrel (200 ppm).
