Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to study the Effect of plant spacing on fruit quality of Capsicum (Capsicum annuum L) hybrid buffalo under natural ventilated polyhouse during September, 2016 to February, 2017 at Hi-Tech Horticulture, Dr. R.P.C.A.U Pusa, Samastipur, Bihar. There were three levels of spacing 45 cm x 30 cm (4.4 plants/m2), 45 cm x 45 cm (2.94 plants/m2) and 45 cm x 60 cm (2.22 plants/m2). The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with three replications. Among the different spacing level, the spacing S3 (45 cm x 60 cm) recorded maximum fruit length (9.41 cm), fruit breadth (7.26 cm), volume of fruit (299.60 cc), rind thickness (0.74 cm), self-life (7.18 days), ‘A+’ (6.48 %), ‘A’ (26.51%) grade was recorded under S3 (45 cm x 60 cm). B (47.08 %) and C (34.88 %) fruit grade were maximum recorded under S1 (45 cm x 30 cm) which was significantly superior over the rest of the treatment.
