Abstract

The bottle gourd belongs to family of Cucurbitaceae and important environmental factors affecting its germination are air & soil temperature during growing season, hence it very difficult to cultivate during winter season. The seed of two varieties of bottle gourd (Tulsi and Warad) were sown under various treatment conditions i.e. open field, open field with black plastic mulch, plastic low tunnel, black plastic mulch with plastic low tunnel and transparent plastic mulch. The germination of bottle gourd varied under various treatment conditions and also affected by varieties of bottle gourd (Tulsi and Warad). The highest yield for Tulsi was found to be 49.2 t/ha under black plastic mulch with plastic low tunnel but for Warad it was found to be 64.4 t/ha under transparent plastic mulch.
