The objective of this work was to test the slow and conventional release fertilization on pepper nozzle initial seedling development. It was developed at UNESP, Campus of Ilha Solteira-SP, in Pad & Fan greenhouse, from 9th October to 18th November 2010, with seedlings produced at UNESP in plastic tray with 60 cells filled with commercial substrate, when it was 4 or 6 leaves they were transplanted in plastic vases with 1.3 L of volume filled with commercial substrate. It was chosen completely randomized design with four treatments and twenty repetitions. The treatments were: T1 = control (without fertilization), T2 = slow release fertilization Osmocote 3M (15-09-12), T3 = slow release fertilization Basacote 3M (16-08-12) and T4 = total release fertilization (04-30-10), everyone with 3 g L-1 substrate. The parameters analyzed were: plant height, steam diameter, chlorophyll content and number of flowers and fruit. The slow release fertilization were more efficient than convention one for the study variable.


Chlorophyll content, Osmocote, Basacote.
