Seed Multiplication and Dry pod Yield Performance Evaluation of Improved Hot Pepper Varieties in Northern Ethiopia, In Case of Central Tigray

Kassa Melese


The seed multiplication was conducted at Abergelle Agricultural Research Centre of Shekatekli (Gmtswa and Mitswa) irrigation schemes in 2006/2007 cropping season. The multiplication was aimed to solve hot pepper seed supply problems in the area as well as to show the dry pod yield performance of previously experimentally selected improved hot pepper varieties to farmers’Markofana and Melkasshote hot pepper varieties were multiplied. Mean harvesting date and mean dry pod and seed  yield were recorded to evaluate the two varieties at farmers field level. In this activity,4 farmers for Markofana and 4 farmers for Melkashote were participated having an area coverage of 0.22 ha and 0.25ha respectively. The average dry pod yield of markofana and  Melkashote was about28.25 qt/ha and 23 qt/ha respectively.
