VAZQUEZ-VAZQUEZ, Cirilo et al. Soil-applied solarized manure in the production of jalapeño pepper (Capsicum annuum L.). Rev. Chapingo Ser.Hortic [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.spe1, pp. 69-74. ISSN 1027-152X.
The present research was conducted to evaluate the effect of bovine manure with a solarization treatment on the "jalapeño" pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) production. Four dosages of solarized manure (20, 40, 60 and 80 Mg·ha-1), as well as one dose of chemical fertilizer as a control (160 and 80 kg·ha-1 of N and P, respectively) were evaluated. Total yield was significantly different among treatments; the highest yield value (58.07 Mg·ha-1) was obtained with the treatment of 40 Mg·ha-1 manure. Regarding yield per picking (harvest), generally at the third picking (90 days after the transplant) the maximum values (13.4 Mg·ha-1) were found. The treatment of 80 Mg·ha-1 generated 1st and 2nd quality fruits with more than the 94 % of the total production.
