Abstract

An Experiment was conducted on the effect of different levels of vermicompost on growth of different varieties of bush pepper under Prayagraj agro-climatic zone. The experiment was laid out with 10 treatments replicated thrice in randomized block design. Ten treatments including three different varieties of bush pepper in three different concentrations of soil and vermicompost are taken. The present investigation revealed that Soil and vermicompost 50% each for the variety Panniyur-2 followed by soil and vermicompost 50% each for the variety Sreekara are the best in terms of growth parameters. Hence it is concluded that the Panniyur-2 planted in 50% of soil and vermicompost is the most suitable for Prayagraj agro-climatic zone.

Keywords: Vermicompost, plant growth, bush pepper, Piper nigrum L.
