Abstract

This research aims to know the effect of NPK and KNO3 fertilizers addition to vegetative growth and fruit quality of melon (Cucumis melo L.) that is grown with potted cultivation system. The research was conducted in Greenhouse of Agriculture Faculty of Muhammadiyah University of Malang around 550 m from sea level, started from January 20th 2007 to April 15th 2007. the equipments employed in the research were plower, scissor, knife, ropes, wool strands, watering hose and solution-containing tanks. The materials used in the research were melon seeds (Cucumis melo L.) ‘Rokc Melon’ variety, polybags, soil, goat manure, urea fertilizer, fertilizers of TSP, KCl, NPK, respectively with 16:16:16 ratio, and potassium nitrate (KNO3). The research was conducted by mean of Factorial Randomized Block Design with 16 replications. Each potted plant was applied with NPK and KNO3 fertilizers with such varying dosages as control (H0E0), with no NPK + 16 grams KNO3 (H0E1), with no NPK + 20 grams KNO3 (H0E2), with no NPK + 24 grams KNO3 (H0E3), 40 grams NPK + with no KNO3 (H1E0), 40 grams NPK + 16 grams KNO3 (H1E1), 40 grams NPK + 20 grams KNO3 (H1E2), 40 grams NPK + 24 grams KNO3 (H1E3), 48,5 grams NPK + with no KNO3 (H2E0), 48,5 grams NPK + 16 grams KNO3 (H2E1), 48,5 grams NPK + 20 grams KNO3 (H2E2), 48,5 grams NPK + 24 grams KNO3 (H2E3), 58 grams NPK + with no KNO3 (H3E0), 58 grams NPK + 16 grams KNO3 (H3E1), 58 grams NPK + 20 grams KNO3 (H3E2), 58 grams NPK + 24 grams KNO3 (H3E3). The observation was made after the plant reached the age of 14 to 35 days after planting (DAP). The variables, therefore, included in the observation were vegetative and yield observations. The vegetative observation consists of plant height, leaf number, leaf width, stem diameter, whereas the yield observation includes fruit weight, fruit diameter, fruit length, fruit flesh thickness, sugar content, total fresh matter, and total dry matter. All parameters were then analyzed with ANOVA. The results of observation showed that NPK and KNO3 fertilizers addition was significantly different only for plant height of 14 days after planting. Observation on 21 to 35 days after planting, on the other hand, was unsignificantly different. Similarly, the observation on leaf number, leaf width, stem diameter, fruit weight, fruit diameter, fruit length, fruit flesh thickness, sugar content, total fresh matter, total dry matter, respectively, was unsignificantly different for observation of each age.
