Study of Horticulture Research Station, College of Agriculture Indore, to find out the effect of plant growth regulators on physiology and yield attributing characters in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.). The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with nine treatments and three replications. The treatments consistsed of two growth promoters viz., gibberrellic acid (50 and 100 ppm), naphthalene acetic acid (50 and 100 ppm), a retardant CCC (250 and 500 ppm), tricontanol (50 and 100 ppm) and a control. Results revealed that the application of plant growth regulators significantly increased morpho-physiological traits viz., vine length, number of leaves and number of female flowers per plant as compared to control. Growth parameters viz., leaf area, LAI, LAR etc. were also influenced by the application of plant growth regulators. Application of growth regulators increased the dry weight of leaf, reproductive parts and total dry weight significantly and the total dry weight showed a positive correlation with yield.
