Abstract

The present research was conducted to find out the impact of Fusarium wilt on horticultural attributes of chilli pepper under filed conditions. Chilli (Capsicum annum) belongs to Solanaceae family which is infected by number of diseases but Fusarium wilt disease is a destructive one which is produced by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. capsici. Twelve chilli genotypes were screened out against this disease to find out the resistant variety with good horticultural attributes. Experiment was conducted under RCBD design in the research area of department of Plant Pathology. Out of twelve varieties, five varieties showed moderately resistant response. Moderately resistant variety i.e. P6 showed maximum fresh and dry weight of shoots (85.90 and 84.04g), shoot length (84.13cm), plant height (99.03cm) and highest number of fruits (518.03g) while ADV 513 showed maximum NOL (101.80) and plant weight (177.07g). Two moderately susceptible varieties 49 and capino exhibited maximum root length (17.93g) and fresh and dry weight of roots (12.83 and 10.96g) respectively. It is concluded that P6 is a moderately resistant variety with good horticultural attributes which should be incorporated in breeding program.
