Growth and Yield Performance Evaluation of Hot Pepper Varieties for Green Pod Purpose under Wondo Genet Agro-ecology

Dejene Tadesse


The experiment was conducted during the 2020 and 2021 cropping seasons at Wondo Genet agricultural research center to identify better hot pepper varieties for green pod production. Four varieties that were released nationally were evaluated together with one farmers` local check using a randomized complete block design in three replications. Hot pepper varieties growth, yield components, and yield data were collected and subjected to analysis of variance using SAS software version 9.4. The results of the experiment showed that the hot pepper variety Melka Awaze was better in plant height, branch number, pod number, and marketable yield as compared to the rest varieties. The marketable yield from Melka Awaze was 17.12% more advantageous than the local check and 51.78% more valuable compared to the lower yield from Melka Zala. Therefore, Melka Awaze is the better variety for green pod production for the present study area. Keywords: Adaptability, pepper, yield
