Abstract: The performance of the two varieties indicated that, capsicum hyb. Mahesh No. 7 responded well to plant height (92.2 cm), number of leaves per plant and fruit quality characteristics and hyb. Shabnam to leaf area index (LAI), number of fruits per plant (9.0), reproductive and yield parameters (0.71 Kg/m2). There was no significant differences among two hybrid varieties for number of branches, fruit set percentage and average weight of fruit. The lowest spacing S3 resulted in maximum plant height (93.2 cm), LAI, earliness in harvesting and total yield ( 0.74 Kg/m2) and highest spacing S1 resulted in maximum number of branches, number of leaf, earliness in fruit flowering and fruit set. There was no positive effect on fruit set %, fruits per plant, average weight of fruit and yield per plant due to spacing levels. Among the training levels, T1 sowed maximum plant height (89.9 cm), minimum days required to first flowering, first fruit set, days to first harvest and size of fruit and T3 resulted in maximum number of branches, number of leaf, LAI, fruits per plant (10.06), yield per plant (0.54 kg) and yield (0.75 Kg/m2). The different levels of spacing and training had no positive effect on shelf life of fruits. However, the fruits still remained marketable upto 8-9 days when stored at room temperature. It is concluded that for higher yield of capsicum under polyhouse conditions, the spacing of 50x40 cm with four shoots training maybe suggested for var. Shabnam in foot hills of Himalayas.
Description: The present investigation “Response of capsicum (Capsicum annuum L. var. grossum) to different levels of spacing and training system under polyhouse condition” was carried out in Polyhouse Complex of College of Horticulture and Forestry – Central Agricultural University, Pasighat, Arunachal Pradesh in the year 2014-2015. The experiment was laid out in three level factorial randomised block design (RBD) with three replications using two capsicum hybrids viz. Mahesh No. 7 (V1) and Shabnam (V2); three levels of spacing viz. S1 (50x60cm), S2 (50x50cm) and S3 (50x40cm) and three levels of training viz. T1(two stem), T2 (three Stem) and T3 (four Stem). The objective of this experiment was to study the effects of spacing and training levels on growth and yield characteristics as well as the varietal performance in polyhouse condition.
