Abstract

An experiment on ridge gourd was conducted from February to May 2022 in the horticulture research field at the Department of Horticulture, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, and Technology & Sciences Prayagraj (U.P.), India. The results of the investigation, regarding the performance of the 13 hybrids of Ridge gourd, i.e., 2022/RIGHYB-1,2022/RIGHYB-2,2022/RIGHYB-3,2022/RIGHYB-4,2022/RIGHYB-5,2022/RIGHYB-6,2022/ RIGHYB-7,2022/RIGHYB-8,2022/RIGHYB-9,2022/RIGHYB-10,2022/RIGHYB-11,2022/RIGHYB-12, were obtained from different sources to find out the best performance in terms of growth and yield quality. The experiment was conducted in a randomized block design, where each hybrid was replicated three times. The results of the present investigation concluded that Ridge gourd hybrid genotype 2022/RIGHYB-2 was recorded with a maximum day to germination (8.07 days), fruit length (22.21 cm), fruit weight (124.92), fruit yield (126.17 q/ha), and a maximum benefit-cost ratio of (5.93).
