The experiment was conducted at Horticulture Research and Extension Station, Devihosur, Haveri,  Karnataka to study the effect of different methods of seed beds for raising seedlings and nipping practices followed at different intervals (before transplanting) on growth and dry yield of BydagiChilli (Dabbi). The pooled results of the experiment indicated that significantly higher dry Chilli yield (966 kg/ha) was obtained with raised bed +  nipping of the seedlings 5 days before transplanting and this was followed by the flatbed + 5 days before transplanting (807 kg/ha).The incidence of leaf curl was also found least i.e the leaf curl index at 45 and 90 days after transplanting was found 0.60 and 0.56 respectively with the treatment raised bed + nipping 5 days before transplanting compare to other treatments.
