Bell-pepper is a money spinner off season vegetable and is being exported to distant markets and brings profitable returns to the farmers. Manual grafting is labour intensive, time consuming and has poor grafting success as compared to robotic grafting, to accelerate grafting in vegetables, grafting robots are being used in some countries. The experimentation was laid out in a Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications and data was recorded on various horticultural and quality traits. Treatment combination RS3A3 ensued lowest in days to first flowering and days to first harvest, showed significantly highest number of marketable fruits per plant, average fruit weight, marketable fruit yield per plant, marketable fruit yield per plot, fruit yield per hectare, fruit width, harvest duration and plant height.Whereas, maximum fruit length was recorded in RS1A3 Treatment. Grafting with scion and stock of as forty five days old was found the best seedling age combination.Data specified that there was no significant effect of interaction between rootstocks and seedling age on pericarp thickness (mm). Scion variety ‘Indra’ was mechanically grafted on rootstock PI-201232 has been found most suitable and can be recommended for further use among growers.
