ABSTRACT

The experiment was carried out to evaluate the growing performance of chilli grown under akasmoni (Acacia auriculiformis) tree saplings on different sides (i.e. North, South, East and West) in same distance 60 cm. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. Data were collected on yield and yield contributing characters of chilli and were analyzed for evaluation for the treatment effects. The result of the research revealed that the highest yield of chilli grown in T0 (control) 2.51t/ha was reduced to the time of 17.13% in the lowest yield of grown in T4 (West side of the field) 2.08t/ha. Yield of  in T2 (South side of the field) was 2.15t/ha which was 14.34% less compare to the highest yield produced in T0 (control). Similarly, yield of chilli in T3 (East side of the field) and T1 (North side of the field) were 2.10t/ha and 2.09t/ha which were 16.33% and 16.73% less compare to the highest yield produced in T0 (control) respectively.
