The present study comprises eight treatment combinations with four replications undercompletely randomized design. From the study, it was found that maximum vine length (388.33 cm),minimum days to first harvest (36.00) and maximum fruit weight (120.39 g) were recorded with theapplication of 75 per cent organic + 25 per cent inorganic fertilizers and total yield per vine (3468.83 g) wasfound with the application of 50 per cent organic + 50 per cent inorganic fertilizers. The overall resultssuggest that application of different combinations of organic and inorganic nutrient sources at optimumlevel proved to be effective in growth, flowering, yield and quality of cucumber.
