Abstract

The field experiments were carried out to study the effect of different growth regulators in
paprika (Capsicum annuum var. longum) cv. KtPl-19 during two seasons in 2002–2003. The
growth regulators treated consisted of Mepiquat chloride (50 and 100 ppm), 2, 4-D (5 and 10
ppm), NAA (25 and 50 ppm), GA3 (25 and 50 ppm) and Nitro benzene (0.1 and 0.2 %). All the
fruit characters invariably exhibited highly significant and positive correlation with fruit yield per
plant in both the conditions except the days to first flowering which was negatively significant
with yield. The number of seeds per fruit and seed weight per fruit also showed negative significant
correlation with yield. However the number of primary branches was non significant with yield.
