Abstract

Trial indicated that yield and yield attributes of chlDi (Capsicum annuum var. longurn)
cv. ReH-l were greatly influenced by the foliar sprays of urea (0.5, land 1.5%) and naphthalene
acetic acid (25, 50 and 75 ppm). Increasing concentrations of urea and naphthalene
acetic acid increased per cent fruit set, fruit weight, per cent dry yield and yield ha'l and
decreased fruit drop percentage, whereas time taken to 50% flowering was decreased by the
higher concentrations of naphthalene acetic acid. The maximum yield was obtidned with the
treatment of 1.5% urea and 75 ppm naphthalene acetic acid,
