Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during 2015 and 2016 to study the effect of growing media and plant spacing on growth and yield of capsicum cv. Orobelle in the mid hills of Himalayas. The media consisting of Soil + Cocopeat + Vermicompost + FYM (2:1:0.5:0.5) proved to be statistically superior over rest of the growing media for almost all the aspects under investigation. All the attributes were better or at par when the plants were spaced at the wider plant spacing (45 x 60 cm). Therefore it can be inferred that incorporation of Cocopeat, Vermicompost, and FYM led to the better soil properties and nutrient supply to plants, whereas appropriate crop spacing created suitable micro environment for proper plant competition.
