Abstract:

The objective of this study was to determine the effects of the general and specific combining abilities (GCA and SCA, respectively) for earliness and yield contributing traits in bell pepper (Capsicum annuum var grossum L.) and to evaluate the most promising crosses. The experimental material comprised 16 F1 crosses, developed by crossing 8 lines with 2 testers during the year 2015. Parents (8 lines and 2 testers) and the 16 F1 cross combinations were planted in a randomized complete block design during the year 2016 under polyhouse conditions for estimating combining ability for earliness and yield contributing traits. Combining ability studies revealed that on the basis of GCA, the parents viz., UHF-11, UHF-6, UHF-14 and UHF-10 were found good general combiners for majority of traits and SCA performance showed that, the cross combinations UHF-8 x California Wonder, UHF-10 x California Wonder, UHF-11 x Solan Bharpur and UHF-6 x Solan Bharpur were found best for majority of yield and yield contributing traits under protected conditions and may be utilized for development of capsicum hybrid for protected conditions in mid hills of Himachal Pradesh.
