Abstract: The field experiment was conducted to study the effect of nutrients and mulching on fruit quality and chlorophyll content of Bell pepper at Horticulture farm, Institute of Agriculture, Visva-Bharati, Sriniketan (West Bengal) during Rabi season 2014-15. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Block Design (CRBD) consisting of nine treatments. The treatment comprising of different combinations of nutrients and mulches i.e. Nitrogen (150Kg ha-1and 200 Kg ha-1), Phosphorous (80 Kg ha-1 and 120 Kg ha-1) and mulches (Paddy straw and water hyacinth each @ 7t ha-1) with three replications. The statistical analysis indicated that the fruit quality of bell pepper was significantly influenced by different nutrients levels and mulches. The bio-chemical parameters viz. Highest total soluble solids (7.410Bx), chlorophyll content (63.28 SPAD) and Vitamin –C (197.64 mg/100g) were observed in treatment T8 with 200kg N ha-1 + 120kg ha-1 P₂O₅ + Paddy straw mulch @ 7 t ha-1. Control condition indicated significantly lowest result than all other treatment.
