ABSTRACT

The use of substrates in the vegetable production has benefits because they are involved in the availability of moisture and nutrient and they have a better handling. By this in the present study has been evaluated the production of Anaheim pepper variety Azteca F1, farmed in regional substrates like sand (Substrate A), sandy clay soil (Substrate B), and a composite substrate (Substrate C: 40% sand, 40% sandy clay, 20% compost). The experimental design was randomized blocks with 10 repetitions. The variables were submitted to analysis of variance, Tukey test and correlations with statistical package SAS version 9.0. In general, the plants farmed in the substrate C are those with the highest values in plant height, number of flowers, fruits, length of fruits and yield. Therefore, the use of substrates particularly the substrate C helps the growth and development of Anaheim pepper plants, it even increases the yield because it has a better control over the unlike soil.
