A field study was conducted during summer 2013 at Main Horticulture Research Station, College of Agriculture Indore, to study 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. Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) is a widely cultivated and used by every class of people in day to day life in their diet. It is a monoecious creeper is a nutritious and delicious vegetable of tropical part of the world (Bailey, 1969). It belongs to family cucurbitaceae and having chromosome number 2n= 14. It contributes in vegetable production due to the number of vegetables are prominent members of this family. Cucumber exhibits a fascinating range of floral morphology, including staminate, pistillate and hermaphrodite flowers occurring in various arrangements and expressed various types of flowers. Likewise, maleness is one of the major problems in cucumber production which significantly reduce the fruit yield. The tender green fruits of cucumber are used as salad, pickle, culinary purposes and known as super food in recent days. Now-a-days, it is widely used to manufactures various cosmetics items like face cream, face wash, shampoo etc.
