Abstract:

The present investigation entitled “Study of pre-flowering foliar spray of plant growth regulator on growth, yield and quality parameters in Sweet Pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) Under protected condition” was carried out during the year 2013-2014 at Hi-tech horticulture unit of Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Indore, Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya, Gwalior (M.P.). The experimental material for the present investigation was comprised of nine treatments viz. GA3 (10 and 50 ppm), NAA (10 and 50 ppm), CCC (5 and 10 ppm) and Triacontanol (5 and 10 ppm) are utilized for comparative study. These treatments are laid in Completely Randomized Block Design with three replications. Observations were recorded on the basis of five random competitive plants selected from each plot separately for morphological, growth analytical, phenological, and yield parameters were evaluated as per standard procedure and also estimate the economics. The results found that foliar application of NAA and Triacontanol has significantly increase growth as well as yield attributes. However, growth retardant like cycocel reduced plant height and hence causing dwarfness to the plant. Among the different plant bio- regulators treatments tried, the foliar application of NAA at concentration of 10 and 50 ppm, whereas Triacontanol at concentration of 5 and 10 ppm, was found to be better alternatives for boosting, up the production of sweet pepper cv. Pusa Deepti under protected cultivation.
