Hybrid seed production of chilli cv Arka Harita using CGMS lines

Primary tabs

In hand pollination, Ascorbic acid 50 ppm  and 75 ppm improved the crossing efficiency  in terms of hybrid seed recovered per   hour of crossing to 7.17g/hour of crossing and  6.86 g/hour of    crossing  from 2.83g/hour of crossing in untreated   control under open field conditions.


In natural cross pollination, foliar sprays of Ascorbic acid 75 ppm and 50 ppm on both the CGMS and restorer lines  twice once, at the onset of flowering and 10 days later resulted


in highest hybrid seed yield of 66kg/ha and 60 kg/ha
