Abstract:

India has been considered as the "Spice Bowl of the World". Black pepper (Piper nigrum L.), is a perennial export oriented cash crop of India. It is also known as "King of Spices". The demand for black pepper and its products is increasing year by year in the world market but the production is not up to the level. At present the productivity in India is very low due to non-adoption of good agricultural practices (Thangaselvabal et al., 2008). In 2016-17 (Est.), India produces 55500 tons of Black pepper from 131230 ha area with a productivity of 2.36t/ha (Spices Board India, 2016-17). The present investigation on performances of different varieties of black pepper as bush pepper has been carried out from September 2013 to April 2014 at GeneBank, BCKV, Kalyani, Nadia, West Bengal. Three varieties of black pepper like Panniyur-2, Panniyur-4 and Panniyur-5 were considered as treatment. Different growth and yield parameters were evaluated. Very meager information is available on performance of Bush Pepper variety under New Alluvial zone. Considering the growth and yield parameters of bush pepper under West Bengal condition, it may be concluded that the performance of Panniyur-5 is superior with respect to all the growth parameters particularly intermodal length (9.02cm), bush length (103.52cm), number of branches/bush (63.8) during the period of observation as well as during the initial years off lowering and yield attributing parameters Panniyur-5 recorded 17 no. of spike/bush with spike wt. of 21g and spike yield of 357g/bush as compared to Panniyur-2.
