Abstract

Drought is one of the major threats of the arid region of Pakistan. Drought stress affects the yield of chilli with up to 50% reduction. In view of this problem, a study was conducted to explore the drought resistance of a local variety Tatapuri (V1) and an exotic variety Bonanza (V2). Pot experiment was conducted with three treatments T0 control (well-watered), T1 (75 % stress), T2 (50 % stress)
and T3 (25 % stress) at vegetative and reproductive stages by three replications.
