Abstract

Pranic agriculture is a traditional science in which pranic healing is applied to plants to enhance plant growth. This study aimed to recognize the usefulness of pranic healing in improving the external morphology and yield of European cucumber against the control. Physical parameters like germination of seeds, days to flowering, number of flowers per plant, number of fruits per plant, number of fruits per kilogram and finally total fruit yield per plant were studied. There was significant reduction in time duration to flowering, increase in number of fruits per plant (14%), and higher yield (18%) per plant was noticed in pranic group, when compared to control. Thus Pranic agriculture was helpful in increasing the external morphology and yield of cucumber plants.
