  • Product Description

Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) is one of the most important fruit crops with lots of health values. The versatility of this fruit has made it a clear favorite in dish ingredients. Due to the ever increasing world population the demand on cucumber has increased drastically. The farming community worldwide has always found it difficult to cater its consumption. The book was written with the aim of increasing the growth and yield potential of cucumber. Dr. Sumathi has conducted field experiments at the Department of Vegetable Crops, Horticultural College, TNAU, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, INDIA to elucidate the effect of shade and fertigation on growth, yield and quality of cucumber hybrid ‘NS 404’. Based on these experiments, it was revealed that the fertigation treatments with 100 per cent water soluble fertilizers applied in combination with calcium chloride spray registered the maximum yield and growth values. The improvements were found in terms of morphological, physiological, biochemical characteristics, enzyme activities and also factors such as fruit weight and fruit yield. This analysis was performed to help the farming community worldwide to increase their cucumber yield.
