Seed treatment :
Treat the seeds with Trichoderma viride 4 g/kg or Pseudomonas fluorescens 10 g/kg or Carbendazim 2 g/kg of seeds before sowing.
Sow the seeds on one side of channel giving a spacing of 0.6 m between hills. Thin the seedlings to two/hill at 15 days after planting.
Irrigate the field before dibbling the seeds and thereafter once a week.
Application of fertilizers :
Apply FYM 40 t/ha as basal and 35 kg of N/ha at 30 days after sowing. Apply Azospirillum and Phosphobacteria 2 kg/ha and Pseudomonoas 2.5 kg/ha along with FYM 50 kg and neem cake @ 100 kg before last ploughing.
Spray pre emergence weedicide like fluchloralin 1 kg a.i. or metalachlor 0.75 kg a.i./ha on third day of sowing.

Fertigation Schedule - Cucumber (Hybrid): Recommended Dose: 150:75:75 Kg/ha
So total requirement of fertilizers are as per below according to fertigation chart :
- 75% remaining dose of Phosphorus applied as super phosphate = 352 kg/ha.
- 19:19:19 = 55 kg / ha
- 13:0:45 = 144 kg / ha
- 12:61:0 = 9 kg / ha
