Here is a summary of my cucumber farm planted on 16th June 2023. 1173 plants in total at a spacing of 60cm between plants  and 1m between rows. I used Rocket nematicide, applied NPK 20:10:10 three times and manure 3 times.

I pruned them and trained them to climb the staking net. To protect from pests and diseases, and to boost growth, I sprayed them with a combo of insecticides, fungicides, foliar fertilizer, aspirin and magnesium sulphate every 4 days.

First harvest started on 25th July (40 days after planting). But because they were not all planted at once first harvest was not up to 1 bag. Just 14.5kg (1 bag is about 54kg). 2nd harvest was 3.5 bags. I normally harvest every 3-5 days.
Pictures coming soon.
Second harvest.

Plant spacing was roughly 60cm by 1 meter.

Training the vines to climb the staking net is one of the most difficult work I experienced. Not because it requires hard work but because it is painfully slow.
