Growth analysis of sweet pepper for investigation effect of wood ash and poultry litter on plant

  • 1 University of Chemical Technology and Metallurgy, Sofia, Bulgaria


The present study uses the method of soil crops to study the fertilization of the soil, changes in the content and forms of nutrients, the effectiveness of various forms of nutrients introduced by the resulting of soil improver – a mixture of waste – wood ash and poultry litter, by means of a vegetation experiment. Sweet pepper Capsicum annuum subsp. macrocarpum L. was selected for the experiment, variety of gate type – Gold medal 7. The results of the study prove the ability to use soil improvers, good resistance of the leaves to sudden intense changes in climatic conditions. The root systems of all mixtures are well developed and strong, stable with good agrochemical parameters compared to that of the zero sample.
