ABSTRACT
This study was carried out in Abu-Al-Khassib region-Basrah, during over two growing seasons of 2002 and 2003, to study the effect of garlic extract at (0.5:1) and (1:1) (w:v), and the common liquorice extract at 1.25 and 2.5 g.l-1, IAA 25, 50 and 75 mg.l-1, and ethephon at 100, 200, 300 mg.l-1 and untreated control on the yield of snake cucumber (cv.Khunaisry) and cucumber (cv.Beit alpha) plants. The result showed that garlic extract treatment at (0.5:1) conc. increased fruit number per plant, fruit length and diameter, early and total yield, vitamin C and dry matter of fruit for both plants. Treatment of growth regulators (IAA and ethephon) increased fruit number per plant, fruit length and diameter, early and total yield, vitamin C of fruit for both plants. Ethephon at conc. of (200, 300 mg.l-1) increased dry matter of fruit for both plants. Ethephon at conc. of (300 mg.l-1) gave the highest quantity and quality yield compared to other treatment.
