Abstract


This study was aimed to examine effects of terminal bud and auxiliary shoot removals on growth and yield of chili pepper. The experiment was arranged in a randomized complete block design (RGD) with 3 replications. Factors studied were trimming of terminal bud and trimming of auxiliary shoots.   Results showed that removal of terminal bud had no effect on plant growth, represented by stem diameter (P = 0.6517) and yields, represented by the number of fruits (P = 0.9806) and length of fruit (P = 1128). Similarly, removal of auxiliary shoots also had no effect on stem diameter (P = 0.7302), number of fruits (P = 0.4210), and length of fruit (P = 0.9878).
