Abstract:
An experiment was carried out to access the effectiveness of different doses of FYM and micronutrients on plant growth and yield charecters of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) in plastic tunnel at the field of Rama University during March 2021 to June 2021. The experiment consists of seven treatments (RDF as control, RDF+2-ton FYM/ha, RDF+2.5-ton FYM/ha, RDF+3-ton FYM/ha, RDF+2% MN, RDF+4% MN and RDF+6% MN) replicated three times and laid out in Complete Randomized Block Design (CRBD). About one month of cucumber seedling were planted in March 1st week. Soil application of recommended dose of fertilizer and FYM was applied and foliar application of micronutrient at 15, 45 and 75and days after transplanting. Soil application of RDF + 3-ton FYM/ha showed significant different in 75, 90 and 105 DAT in number of leaves (26, 36 and 38) and in length of leaves (31cm, 32cm and 34cm) followed by RDF + 4% MN compare to control (28cm, 29cm and 29cm) respectively. Maximum diameter (11.33mm) was recorded in RDF + 3-ton FYM/ha as compare to control (10.33mm), RDF + 2.5-ton FYM/ha (10.67mm), RDF + 2% MN (10mm), RDF + 4% MN (9.33mm) and RDF + 6% MN (9mm). The RDF + 3-ton FYM/ha was not significantly different in number of fruits with other treatments. RDF + 3-ton FYM/ha was found effective length of fruit and diameter of fruit (30.67 cm, 10.5cm) per sample plant as compare to control (22.33cm, 7.1cm), RDF + 2-ton FYM/ha (25.67cm, 8.16cm), RDF + 2.5-ton FYM/ha (27cm, 9.3cm), RDF + 2% MN (29cm, 8.6cm), RDF + 4% MN (24.3cm, 7.16cm) and RDF + 6% MN (23cm, 6.5cm). The RDF + 3-ton FYM/ha was found effective weight of fruits per sample plant (6.5kg) as compare to control (5.13kg), RDF + 2-ton FYM/ha (5.16kg), RDF + 2.5-ton FYM/ha (5.46kg), RDF + 2% MN (5.6kg), RDF + 4% (4.9kg) and RDF + 6% (4.5kg). However, the application of RDF + 3-ton FYM/ha was most effective as compare to other doses of FYM and micronutrients.
