Abstract:

Bell Pepper (Capsicum annuum L var. grossum) popularly known as sweet pepper, capsicum or Shimla Mirch is a high value vegetable and an important cash crop for temperate regions. The correlation between different quantitative characters provides an idea of association that could be effectively exploited to formulate selection strategies for improving yield components. For any effective selection programme, it would be desirable to consider the relative magnitude of association of various characters with yield. The present investigations were carried out at the Experimental Farm of Department of Vegetable Science, Dr YS Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan HP during Kharif, 2017. The results concluded that a highly significant and positive genotypic and phenotypic correlation of yield per plant was found with number of fruits per plant, fruit weight, fruit breadth, number of lobes per fruit and number of primary branches. Therefore, main emphasis should be given on these characters, while making the selection in bell pepper genotypes for high yield. Maximum positive and direct effect towards yield was contributed by fruit weight followed by number of fruits per plant, fruit breadth, thousand seed weight, fruit length and number of seeds per fruit. The improvement in these characters will lead to higher yield in bell pepper.
