Pepper and onion yield estimate parameterswere conducted during off-season of 2011 using irrigation both at on-stationand at on-farm of Adami Tulu Agricultural Research Center and its surrounding districtsof Adami Tulu, Dugda and Bora district of central rift valley by participatingimportant influential actors farmers, NGOs, DAs, district agriculturalofficers, etc. from the inception to evaluate different seed treatment optionsthat can favor onion and pepper yield estimate parameters. Bombey red and Marekofanaof high yielding, disease tolerant, early maturing, market and farmer preferredvarieties were used for the research by collecting from Adami Tulu AgriculturalResearch Center. Data on performance of yield estimate parameters wereevaluated until it was transferred to permanent field. The on-station dataanalysis result indicated that except root length and greenness of onion andseedling thickness and greenness of pepper, majority of yield estimate parameters were statistically P < 0.05significant while root length, shoot length and shoot height of onionon-farm were statistically P < 0.05 non-significant. For on-station onion,hot water treatment supplemented with dressing the seed with half recommendationrate of apron-star resulted in the highest yield estimate parameters for mostof the variables collected. Although there was an absence of consistent for alltraits under analysis, sowing seed without any treatment resulted to the lowestcount or measurement. But seed treated with mancozeb as per the recommendationgave the highest score or count for pepper except that of leaf number andgreenness in which hot water treatment alone resulted in highest count. Eventhough yield estimate parameters don’t totally reflect actual attainable yieldat the end of harvesting, seedlings that were superior for those traits mostlyreflect yield if different management options applied as per recommendation setfor the crops.
