Abstract:

The experiment entitled “Effect of Spacing and Nutrient Management on Growth and Yield of King Chilli (Capsicum chinense Jacq.) grown under Protected Condition” was carried out during the year 2017-2018 under polyhouse at College of Horticulture and Forestry, Central Agricultural University, Pasighat, Arunachal Pradesh. Nine treatments with two factors (spacing and Nutrient) i.e. 3 spacing levels S1 (60 cm x 60 cm), S2 (60 cm x 75 cm), S3 (60 cm x 90 cm) and 3 nutrient levels N1 (90:45:45 kg NPK/ha + 20 t FYM/ha), N2 (120:60:60 kg NPK/ha +15 t FYM/ha) and N3 (150:75:75 kg NPK/ha + 10 t FYM/ha) were arranged in factorial RBD design, in order to study the effect of various spacing and nutrient level on growth and yield of king chilli under protected condition. The plants grown in lowest spacing level S1 obtained the maximum plant height (205.73 cm), highest number of leaves/plant (1125.29), the least number of days to first flowering, 50% flowering first fruiting, 50% fruiting, longest fruit length (73.16 mm) and fruit girth (106.11 mm). While spacing level S3 resulted in highest number of fruit/plant (175.72), fruit yield/plant (1.35 kg). The nutrient level N3 resulted in highest plant growth parameters, number of fruits/plant (142.53), fruit yield/plant (1.13 kg). The least number of days required to first flowering and fruiting, 50% flowering and fruiting days to red ripe maturity, maximum fruit length and girth was obtained in S1N1. While maximum number of fruits 185.13/plant, fruit yield 1.45 kg/plant were obtained from S1N3 i.e. 60 cm x 90 cm + 150:75:75 kg NPK/ha + 10 t FYM/ha.
