In this work a field study was conducted to evaluate the effect of Spacing and growing conditions on Chilliat the department of Horticulture, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during 2011-12 and 2012-13 to investigate growth and yield of Chilli as influenced by growing conditions and spacing. There were two different growing conditions viz. low tunnel and open field conditions and three levels of spacing viz. 60x30cm, 60x45 cm, 60x60 cm. Two years average data indicated that maximum yield was obtained when Chilli was grown under low tunnel as compare to open field cultivation. The increase in yield to the extent of 38 per cent in addition to better fruit quality was observed under low tunnel. The plant spacing had significant variation in almost all the growth and yield components Number of branches/plant, number of fruits/plant, and yield/plant were increased with the increasing of plant spacing but plant height was found to be significantly increased with the decreasing plant spacing

Key words:  Plant spacing, Growing conditions, Chilli, Growth, Yield.
