Response of Solanum pseudocapsicum to Watering Periods and Nitrogen Application

Abstract: The response of Solanum pseudocapsicum to watering periods and nitrogen levels was investigated in a glasshouse experiment. The two factors studied significantly affected the vegetative growth and biomass production at p≤0.05. A significant interaction was also determined for 70% of the parameters studied. The application of 100 kg N ha-1 was found to be optimum for vegetative growth and biomass production no matter the watering period. Beyond this level, fertilizer application did not increase the magnitude of the growth parameters. The result of this study showed that this plant, although grows in the wild, is intolerant to drought condition and require small amount of fertilizer for its successful propagation. This might explain its adaptation to moist and shaded habitats and its survival ability as indoor ornamental plant.
