The present study entitled “Evaluation of F1
hybrids in chilli (Capsicum annuum
L.)” was carried out to study the growth, yield and yield attributing characters in chilli. The field trial comprise thirty F1
hybrids, 13 parents and 3 checks sown in Randomized Block Design with two replications, during kharif
Among the thirty F1 hybrids, the maximum yield per hectare was observed in P2 X P5 (608.64 qt) compared to parents and checks. Taking growth, yield and yield attributing characters along with incidence of pest and diseases into consideration, the hybrids P2 X P5, P1 X P8, P1 X P13, P2 X P13 and P2 X P9 were found superior to parents and checks. These hybrids can be used for further improvement in chilli.
