Abstract

Black pepper (Piper nigrum L.) the king of spices is originated in the Western Ghats of India
and subsequently spread to other countries. It is the largest foreign exchange earner among spices
and the average quantity exported from India accounts for more than 70 per cent of the total
production. The demand for black pepper and its products is getting increased year by year in the
world market but the production is not up to the level. At present the productivity in India is very low due to non adoption of good agricultural practices.
