dc.description.abstractAn experiment was conducted to investigate the influence of different growth promoting substances on growth and yield of bitter gourd. Experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with four replications. Different foliar sprays viz. T1- Effective Microorganism (EM), T2- Cow urine, T3- Commercial growth promoting substance (Boom flower) and T4- Water (control) were tested. Highest values for average vine length (175.4 cm) and vine weight (40.9 g) were recorded in T3 and lowest male: female flower ratio (7:1) was obtained in T1. Maximum fruit length (29.9 cm) and fruit weight (158.1 g) were recorded in T1. The results revealed that application of EM is one of the ways to increase the yield of bitter gourd.en_US
