Pumpkin occupies a prominent place among vegetables owing to its high productivity, nutritive value, good stability, and better transport qualities. It is used both in immature and mature stages as a vegetable. Its young leaves, tender stem, and flower are also cooked and consumed. Yellow or orange-fleshed pumpkins are rich in carotene. Pumpkin is a warm-season crop but can withstand cool weather. The plant is also tolerant to partial shade. A temperature of 18-30 QC is found optimum for its cultivation. Pumpkin can be grown in various kinds of soil but sandy loam to loam soil is ideal. A well-drained field should be incorporated with organic fertilizer before planting.

Scope For Cultivation of Pumpkin:
Most soils can be improved by incorporating some organic matter. Composted manure can be applied in the fall at a rate of 10 to 20 tons per acre. Green manure crops (winter rye, wheat, or barley) planted in fall and turned under a month or two before planting are good sources of organic matter. A broadcast application of nitrogen fertilizer at a rate of 30 to 50 pounds per acre of nitrogen will help microorganisms break down the organic matter. In addition to plowing and diking, chiseling or sub-soiling fields before planting promotes deeper root penetration, particularly in compacted soils. Replant fertilizer treatments can be incorporated in the final diking operation for sprinkler irrigation, or by listing for furrow irrigation. Depending on row spacing, listed beds can be flattened on top (vegetable beds) with a bed shape or rototiller to keep pumpkins out of irrigation furrows to reduce fruit rots. Fields should be laser leveled if a flat vegetable bed is required.
