Blossom-end rot (BER) is one of the major physiological disorders of greenhouse bell pepper (Capsicum annuum L.). The objective of the present work was to study the effects of the solution N concentration and N-NO3 : N-NH4 ratio on fruit yield and the incidence of BER and other fruit-quality traits of greenhouse-grown bell pepper in a Mediterranean climate. Three experiments were conducted: Expt. 1 included five total N concentrations (0.25 to 14 mmol·L, with a constant N-NO3 : N-NH4 ratio of 4… CONTINUE READING
