Abstract:
Chilli pepper or hot pepper (Capsicum annuum L.,) is an important spice and vegetable crop worldwide belonging to the family Solanaceae and affected by various pathogens (viruses). Begomovirus causes chilli leaf curl disease and heavily losses yield. The present investigation was formulated to screen resistant genotypes against different major viruses. The disease was be identified by typical upward/downward leaf curling, crinkling, puckering and reduction in leaf area along with stunting of whole plants. Disease severity was scored 0-4 under six classes and observed that 13 genotypes were found tolerant against thrips, 15 genotypes against mites, 15 against anthracnose, 13 against chilli leaf curl viruses and Punjab lal (393.45 grams per plant) variety produced maximum fruit yield followed by Jayanti and KDSC-810 (both 348.45 grams per plant) because of resistant/tolerant traits causes under considerations.
