The experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of different types of phosphorus (P) fertilizer combining with organic fertilizer (OF) and phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) on yield, yield component and P uptake in hybrid cucumber cv. Micro C 306 F 1 grown in Sena soil series in Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya province. The experimental design was carried out in completely randomized design (CRD) with 7 treatments and 3 replications. Results showed that the application of P fertilizer at 0.5 time of farmer usage combining with RP at 250 kg/rai and OF at 250 kg/rai gave the highest yield and number of fruit (826.7 g/pot and 19.4 fruit/plant), while the application of RP at 250 kg/rai and OF at 250 kg/rai had the highest biomass in the above-ground part (36.9 g/pot). In addition, the application of P fertilizer at 0.5 time of farmer usage combining with RP at 500 kg/rai gave the highest P uptake in fruit and whole plant (2.74 and 3.44 g/plant). The correlation between P uptake and yield of cucumber was significantly different for a linear correlation (r=0.84**).
