Abstract: An investigation was carried out at the Horticultural Research Farm, Gujarat Agricultural University, Anand Campus, Anand during the year 1994, to assess the response of various plant growth regulators (GA3 10 ppm, Ethephon 250 ppm, CCC 50 ppm, TIBA 50 ppm and MH 150 ppm) and Chemicals (Boron 3 ppm and CaN03 20 ppm) on growth, sex behaviour and yield of bottle gourd cv. 'Pusa Summer Prolific Long'. This study revealed that application of MH 150 ppm at 2-true leaf stage and 4-leaf stage significantly reduced the length of main axis and increased the number of branches per vine, lowered the nodes and days to first female flower appearances increased the number of female flowers and Lowered the male : female sex ratio and increased the girth as well as weight of fruit. MH 150 ppm also significantly produced the highest fruit yield per vine as well as per hectare followed by ethephon 250 ppm. From the results of the investigation, it could be inferred that MH 150 ppm was most effective in improving the growth, sex behaviour and yield of bottle gourd cv. 'Pusa Summer Prolific Long'.
