The Effects of Soil Tillage on Stem Development of Pepper plant

G. Erdem, S. Yildirim, M. Dilmac and A. Ece

Abstract:
The research was conducted at clay loam in an unheated greenhouse (glass) located at GOP University, Horticulture Department, Tokat, Turkey. The effects of soil tillage method on penetration resistance and on development of the pepper stem grown inside a greenhouse were investigated. The pepper stem was studied under four tillage systems with three replication. Tillage managements were Y1 ploughing, Y2 ploughing and rotary tillage, Y3 rotary tillage and, Control or no tillage. The pepper seedlings were grown in torf multi pot then transferred in the greenhouse when pepper plant have been 6 or 7 leaves at May 6. Stem and total plant length, stem diameter, leaves number and stem weight were determined at five measurement. The effect of tillage method on penetration resistance and on stem development were significant (p<0.01). Primary tillage and fallowing secondary tillage using a rotary tillage supplied lower penetration resistance. Therefore, better stem growth in stem diameter, stem and leaves fresh weight and leaves number were obtained under this tillage method.
