Grafting of vegetable seedlings is a unique horticultural technology practiced to improve plant production, reduce disease susceptibility and increase plant vigour. This technology was introduced to Europe and other countries in the late 20th century along with improved grafting methods suitable for commercial production of grafted vegetable seedlings. Grafting onto specific rootstocks generally provides resistance to soil borne diseases and nematodes and increases yield. With the aim of determining whether grafting could improve to manage soil-borne diseases of king chilli (Capsicum chinense), a polyhouse experiment was carried out to determine growth, yield and fruit quality of king chilli grafted on two locally available disease free rootstocks viz., Mem Jolokia (Capsicum frutescens) and Moni Jolokia (Capsicum frutescens).

Keywords: Grafting, King chilli, Protected condition, Mem Jolokia, Moni Jolokia
