Abstract:

Study was conducted on effect of training system and fruit load on seed production and quality of bell pepper using cv. “Solan Bharpur” in the Department of Seed Science and Technology, Dr. Y S Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan (HP) during kharif season 2018. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (Factorial) in the open field and in Completely Randomized Design (Factorial) in laboratory. Three training systems (no training -Tr1, two stem training -Tr2, four stem training -Tr3) and four fruit loads (retaining all fruits -FL1, retaining ten fruits -FL2, retaining twelve fruits -FL3, retaining fourteen fruits -FL4 plant-1) were used with different treatment combinations. The treatment combination Tr2FL2 (two stem training with ten fruits plant-1) proved superior in terms of ripe fruit weight (66.65g), ripe fruit length (6.56 cm), ripe fruit width (5.05 cm), number of seeds fruit-1 (187.77), 1000 seed weight (6.21 g), germination (96.50%), speed of germination (15.95), seed vigour index-I (1448.30), seed vigour index-II (284.77) and electrical conductivity of seeds (0.060 dSm-1). Therefore, Tr2FL2 treatment combination can be recommended for quality seed production of bell pepper under mid hills of Himachal Pradesh.
