Abstract:
In order to study the effect of different dates of transplanting on fruit yield of sweet pepper using low plastic tunnel and black plastic mulch under tarai condition of Uttarakhand, an investigation was carried out at Vegetable Research Centre of G. B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar, U. S. Nagar, Uttarakhand during the cropping season October, 2014 to May, 2015. The dates of transplanting were 20th November, 20th December& 20th January, whereas low cost protected technologies used were low plastic tunnel with black plastic mulch, low plastic tunnel without black plastic mulch, with black plastic mulch only and control (traditional practice). The trial was replicated thrice in Two Factorial Randomized Block Design.
Out of 12 treatment combinations, although treatment D2T1M1 (transplanting of capsicum on 20th December under poly tunnel with black plastic mulch) had recorded highest fruit yield (346.550 q/ha) and net return (3,54,130/ha). Based on overall performance, it could be concluded that under prevalent climatic condition of Uttarakhand tarai region, transplanting of capsicum under poly tunnel on 20th December (D2T1M0) is the best and most economical, hence recommended for commercial cultivation of small and marginal farmers.
