Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Evaluation of parthenocarpic cucumber genotypes under protected structures’’ was conducted rabi season during the year 2020-2021 under naturally ventilated polyhouse and shadenet house conditions at College of Horticulture, Anantharajupeta, Dr. Y.S.R Horticultural University, Andhra Pradesh. The experiment was laid out in factorial complete randomized design consisting two factors viz., Factor one: nine parthenocarpic cucumber genotypes like PPC-2, PPC-3, PPC-6, DpaCH-4, DpaCH-7, KPCH-1, Punjab Kheera-1, Multistar and Sania; Factor two: P1: Naturally ventilated polyhouse and P2: 50% Shade net house with replicated thrice. The result indicated that among the protected structures the maximum vine length (251.32 cm), internodal length (11.61 cm) and fruit length (12.12cm), diameter (4.26 cm), weight (223.51 g), number of fruits per vine (19.91), yield per plant (4.31kg) was recorded in polyhouse conditions than that of shade net house. Among the genotypes Sania significantly recorded superior performance with respect to vine length (263.60 cm), fruit length (22.25 cm), fruit weight (302.55 g), yield per plant (5.2 kg). Among the interaction effect the treatment combination G9P1 (cv. Sania grown under polyhouse condition) shown maximum plant growth and yield attributes than other treatment combinations.
