Abstract

A study on Honeydew melon using integrated nutrient management was conducted at the experimental area of the Institute of Agricultural Technology, Isabela State University, Cauayan City from January to April 28, 2018. Specifically, it aimed to: Determine the performance of honeydew melon applied with different treatments, and assess which combination of treatments obtains a highest return on investment. The study was laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design with three equal replications. The treatments were as follows: T1– FR- Based on soil analysis, T2 – 20% FR + Vermiwash + Foliar Fertilizer, T3 – 40% FR + Vermiwash + Foliar Fertilizer, T4 – 60% FR + Vermiwash + Foliar Fertilizer, T5 – 80% FR + Vermiwash + Foliar Fertilizer, and T6 – 100% FR + Vermiwash + Foliar Fertilizer. Based from the results of the study the longest vines at harvesting were obtained at T6 – 100% FR + Vermiwash + Foliar Fertilizer and T5 – 80% FR + Vermiwash + Foliar Fertilizer. Application 100% FR + Vermiwash + Foliar Fertilizer produced the heaviest weight of fruits and weight of fruits per sampling area and thicker fruit flesh. In terms of fruit diameter, sugar content, texture and aroma of the Honeydew melon the application of T6 – 100% FR + Vermiwash + Foliar Fertilizer and T1– FR- Based on soil analysis obtained the highest mean values.
