Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted during Kharif 2014 at vegetable research block of Veer Chandra Singh Garhwali Uttrakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, Ranichauri Campus with 14 genotypes of Chilli. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three replications. Observation were recorded on seed yield and growth parameters viz., days to 50% flowering, number of primary branches, number of secondary branches, plant height (cm), ripe fruit length (cm), ripe fruit girth (cm), ripe fruit weight (g), number of red fruit per plant, red fruit yield per plant (g), number of seed per fruit, seed yield per plant (g), seed yield (q/ha). A great extent of variability was observed among the various genotypes for characters studied. Analysis of variance for seed yield and quality characters revealed significant difference among the genotypes for all the characters. The genotype UHFC 12-6 revealed maximum values for seed yield (4.99 g/plant and 2.46 q/ha) and ripe fruit weight (5.30 g), whereas UHFC 12-4 exhibited best performance for red ripe fruit yield per plant (62.78 g) and number of ripe fruit per plant (17.44). The genotype UHFC 12-5 was promising for number of primary branches per plant (5.60) was noted in UHFC 12-1. Therefore, genotypes UHFC 12-6, UHFC 12-4, UHFC 12-5 and UHFC 12-1 could be used in future breeding programme for improvement in most of the ripe fruit yield, seed yield, and seed quality parameters in chilli.
