Planting and Care for Green Capsicum

- There should be no excessive rainfall or humidity in the region.
- The pH level of the soil should be between 6 and 7.
- In columns, the spacing between green capsicum plants should be 18 to 24 inches or 45 to 61 cm apart, and in rows, the spacing should be 24 to 36 inches, or 61 to 91 cm apart.
Sowing Green Capsicum Seeds

- Because the green capsicum seeds are very small, avoid seeding very deeply.
- Keep sprinkling water on it at least three times a week in the evening.
- Green capsicum seeds can be planted at any time during the year.
Growing Green Capsicum
- Sprinkle water over the green capsicum seeds after they have been sown to keep the seeds from drying out.
- The seeds will germinate within a week or ten days, and tiny sprouts will appear.
- Only after the seedlings have reached a certain size should they be transplanted to other grow bags.
- Until transplanting, make sure the developing bed or land is well-watered.
- After 20 days, feed the green capsicum plants with the proper amount and timing of organic manure vermicompost and fertilizer.
- Green capsicum thrives in a wide range of temperatures.
Harvesting Green Capsicum
- Green capsicum is harvested 55 to 60 days after transplanting the plant from one grow bag to another.
- Capsicum should be harvested first thing in the morning.
- The smooth and firm appearance of the capsicum fruit is a sign of fruit maturity.
- Following the harvesting of the plant's berries, the residue in the surrounding area should be swept.
- Each variety of capsicum plant yields a different amount of fruit.
- Until grading, the fruits are picked and thoroughly cleaned with a soft cloth after harvesting.
Precautions while Growing Green Capsicum
- Always be on the lookout for the first signs of an insect or fungal attack, as well as any other infections. As soon as any signs of such diseases are noticed, appropriate medicines should be sprayed on the plant.
- There should be no strong winds in the region. Low-lying areas, rivers, and streams should be avoided. The soil should be extremely porous, with a salinity of no more than 1 ms/cm.
Common Problems Affecting Green Capsicum Plants and Solutions
Pest and insect attacks can be avoided by providing a sufficient supply of water and manure to the soil in the necessary amounts, as well as good microbial treatment.
Over the summer, green capsicum plants should be irrigated with freshwater, which is supplied at the edges of the growing bed to compensate for water loss due to evaporation.
Aphids, thrips, whitefly, fruit borer, nematode, mites, and other pests are the most common pests of green capsicum plants. Damping-off, powdery mildew, Cercospora leaf spot, phytophthora, and other viral diseases are common diseases found on these plants. Pests and diseases around the greenhouse could be controlled with carefully selected chemical pesticides or insecticides.
Physiological defects in the plant's fruit include blossom-end rot, sunscald, fruit splits, fruit splitting, fruit spots, misshapen fruit, and internal growth in the fruit. Both of these problems can be avoided by creating the best possible growing environment, adequately watering the plants, and preventing waterlogging in the roots of the green capsicum plant. For fungal infections, plants should be treated with Trichoderma Viride Bio Fertilizer and Pseudomonas Fluorescens Bio Fertilizer.
