Abstract:
Eleven black pepper cultivars were evaluated for yield and quality traits which were grown under arecanut based cropping system during 2019-20 in Uttara Kannada (Dist.), Karnataka. The main objective was to select suitable elite cultivar of black pepper (Piper nigrum L.) to the malnad region of Karnataka. Among the cultivars, Cv. Kurimale was reported to produce longer spikes (22.99 cm) provided with highest number of berries (103.7) and spike weight (16.80 g). Whereas, number of spikes per sq. m area (60.08), fresh berry yield (10.67 kg/vine), dry berry yield (3.66 kg/vine) were found maximum in Panniyur-1(check). With respect to black pepper and white pepper recovery it was found to be maximum in the Cv. Sigandini (36.98%) and Panniyur-1 (29.15%) respectively. Among the quality parameters, Panniyur-1 recorded maximum essential oil (2.95%) and oleoresin contents (8.78%), whereas, Cv. Sigandini had maximum piperine (5.1%) and bulk density (633.47 g/l).
