Abstract:
Hundred chilli germplasm viz., pure germplasm, F2 generation, F5 generation and F6 generation cultivated in Konkan region were studied for nutritional composition, viz., Moisture, Ascorbic acid, Total N, P, K, and Micronutrients viz., Cu, Fe, Zn and Mn during the year 2018-2019. Analysis of variance revealed significant differences among the germplasm. Highest moisture percentage (93.58 %) was recorded in WKLC-1 of F2 generation of chilli germplasm, while Ascorbic acid was found to be maximum (196.06 mg 100 g-1) in WKLC-15 of F6 generation of chilli germplasm. The study revealed highest nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium content in WKLC-12 (1.75%), WKLC-2 (0.20%) and WKLC-10 (2.92%) of F2 generation, respectively. The values for iron, zinc and copper content were found to be maximum in WKLC-18 (23.18 mg kg-1), WKLC-6 (42.75 mg kg-1) and WKLC-3 (45.37 mg kg-1), respectively, of F2 generation of chilli germplasm. Wakawali-19 (34.66 mg kg-1) of pure chilli germplasm showed highest Manganese content.
