Abstract


Chilli (Capsicum annum L.) is one of the important spice crops of India  and grown all over the globe. The crop is severely attacked by thrips, Scirlalhrrps dorsalis  Hood and mites, Polyp/mgotarsonemus Ialus Banks which cause leaf curl symptom called  “murda". Genotypes of chilli were evaluated during kharif seasons viz., 1997, 1998 and  1999 against thrips and mites to identify source for resistance. Of the 24 genotypes  screened the per cent leaf curl index (LCI) against thrips ranged from 15.3 to 42.3 and  mites 19.6 to 40.4. Pant C-1, LCA~304 and LCA~312 were found to be promising source  of resistance against thrips and mites.
