Capsicum Cultivation A. INTRODUCTION
Capsicum (Capsicum annum) is an important commercial egetable crop grown throughout the world in a wide range of climatic conditions. Capsicum belongs to the family !!olanaceae". Capsicum is also known as !weet "epper# bell pepper or !himla Mirch is one of the popular egetable grown throughout $ndia. $t is rich in itamin %# &itamin C# and minerals like Calcium (1'.(mg)# Magnesium (1(.)mg) "hosphorus (2*.'mg) "otassium (2+'.,mg) "-. 1// g fresh weight. Capsicum is cool season crop# but it can be grown round the year using protected structures where temperatures and .elati e humidity (.0) can be manipulated.

B. #OIL #TRUCTUR$
To be successful in Capsicum growing# soil selection is ery important. The main factors to considered are as under1 12 !oil p0 should be in between +./ to +.3 or it should be maintained at this le el to get ma4imum efficiency in absorption of nutrients. 22 The salinity le el of soil should not be more than 1 m!5cm. Therefore# as soon as you select the site# get the soil analy6ed to decide its further reclamation. '2 The soil should be highly porous and well drained to ha e better root growth and better penetration of roots.

C. %$N$RAL DI#INF$CTION OF #OIL
7efore plantation of Capsicum# disinfections of soil are absolutely necessary. $n particular# the fungus Phytophthora, Pythium and root knot nematode is a menace to Capsicum. The arious methods of sterili6ation are1 &. Steam: 8ot feasible for $ndian conditions. '. Solarization: Co er the soil with plastic for + 9 * weeks. !unrays will heat up the soil# which will kill most fungi. 3. Chemical: A. ()d*ogen Pe*o+ide ,('O'- .it/ #ilve*. "rocedure1 • Wet the beds with irrigation water of neutral p0 : -C less than /.3 m!5cm. • $n irrigation water; mi4 hydrogen pero4ide with sil er at the rate of '3 ml per liter of water ('.3< solution). !ince this product is highly reacti e and has an o4idi6ing agent; do not mi4 any other chemical with this.
