Fertilizer Recommendation :

Chilly N-P-K dose kg/ha
Farmyard manure 9 to 10 tones/hectare of FYM or compost is applied at the time of field preparation
Fertilizer For Irrigated chilies, 100 kg N, 50kg P & 50 kg K is generally applied per hectare. Micronutrients as per soil analysis deficit.
Dosage Fertilizers are applied in four equal doses. First is applied at the time transplanting remaining doses are applied at 4th, 11th & 13th week after transplanting.


Kc = Crop co-efficient.
ETo = Reference evapo-transpiration (mm)
ETm = Maximum evapo-transpiration = Kc x ETo (mm)
ETa = Evapo-transpiration actual (mm)
Ya = Actual yield
Ym = Maximum yield
