Importance of Training and Pruning in Capsicum Cultivation in Protected Environments

The article explores the importance of training and pruning in the cultivation of capsicum (bell peppers) in protected environments. Pruning and training practices are crucial for maximizing fruit quality, plant lifespan, and crop yield. Pruning helps create a balanced vegetative and reproductive growth in plants, improves air circulation, and facilitates pest and disease control. Training, on the other hand, involves removing certain parts of the plant to shape it properly and support heavy crop loads. The article suggests specific pruning techniques for capsicum plants, such as retaining four stems and splitting the branches to achieve bigger fruits and higher productivity. The study emphasizes the significance of training and pruning in achieving higher yields in capsicum cultivation, particularly in protected environments.
