Effect of neem cake and vermicompost on growth and yield parameter of chilli

SK Veena, RS Giraddi, M Bhemmanna and K Kandpal

The present experiment was conducted to assess the growth and yield parameter of chilli by the application of neem cake, vermicompost and pongamia cake under field condition at Main Agricultural Research station University of Agricultural sciences, Raichur during 2014 -2015. The results indicated that crop amended with neem cake (250 kg/ha) and vermicompost (1t/ha) were effective in keeping the growth and yield parameter density in check, being comparable to recommended insecticides. Significantly highest red chilli yield was registered in the crop receiving neem cake at 250 kg/ha (10.42 q/ha). This was followed by vermicompost at 1t/ha (10.12 q/ha). Untreated crop yielded significantly lowest at 6.73 q/ha red chillies. The research highlights the utility of organics in managing sucking pests of byadagi chilli that has potential export value.
