Evaluation of chilli germplasm for seed quality parameters

Jayanthi BV, Shashikala S Kolakar, Lakshmana D, Sadashiv Nadukeri, Devaraju

Chilli is commercially cultivated due to its nutritional and pharmaceutical values. High seed germination is prerequisite for good seedling establishment. The present investigation was carried out at College of Horticulture, Mudigere during the year 2018-19 to study the varietal response for germination traits in diverse capsicum germplasm. Six germination characters were focused viz., test weight, germination percentage, shoot length, root length, root to shoot ratio and seedling vigour index-I. Analysis of variance revealed significant difference for all the germination traits, reflecting present germplasm is diverse for germination traits. These finding would be useful to improve germination traits in future breeding programmes.
