Yellowbird, Samander, & Lotta Capsicum
Trial Project

About the Project

The Yellowbird, Samander, and Lotta Capsicum Trial project aims to evaluate the growth, productivity, and overall performance of three different varieties of capsicum peppers: Yellowbird, Samander, and Lotta. The trial is designed to assess the suitability of these varieties for cultivation in Imereti region, Georgia or under specific growing conditions (indoor, outdoor, in the soil or pots etc.) available at 4 different HTDC Class B member farmers’ (Kopitnari IDP Settlement, Cooperative Mukhiani, LTD Begi and LTD Adina) production sites.




The main objective of the trial project is to compare and analyze the performance of Yellowbird, Samander, and Lotta capsicum varieties in terms of growth rate, yield, disease resistance, and overall quality. The project seeks to identify the most suitable variety for commercial cultivation, taking into consideration factors such as market demand, flavor profile, and ease of cultivation.


Experimental Setup


The trial project involves setting up a controlled growing environment, such as a greenhouse or dedicated plot of land, where the three capsicum varieties will be grown side by side. The experimental setup should include multiple replicates to account for variations and ensure statistical validity.


Parameters and Measurements

Throughout the trial period, various parameters and measurements will be recorded to evaluate the performance of each capsicum variety. These may include:


Growth Rate: Observations will be made on the height, branching pattern, and overall vigor of the plants.


Yield: The number and weight of fruits harvested per plant will be recorded to assess the productivity of each variety.


Disease Resistance: The incidence and severity of common capsicum diseases, such as powdery mildew or bacterial spot, will be monitored to evaluate the resistance of each variety.


Quality Assessment: Parameters such as fruit size, color, taste, and texture will be assessed to determine the marketability and consumer acceptability of the capsicum varieties.


Data Collection and Analysis: Regular data collection is carried out throughout the trial period, including weekly or bi-weekly measurements of the aforementioned parameters. The data will be carefully recorded and organized for subsequent analysis. Statistical tools and techniques will be employed to compare the performance of the three capsicum varieties and identify any significant differences.




Based on the data analysis and observations made during the trial project, conclusions will be drawn regarding the performance of Yellowbird, Samander, and Lotta capsicum varieties. The most promising variety will be identified, considering its growth characteristics, yield potential, disease resistance, and overall quality. The results of the trial project will provide valuable insights for GH Agri and involved farmers, horticulturists, and agricultural stakeholders in general, while deciding which variety to cultivate for optimal results.
