The aim of study conducted in 2010–2012 was to evaluate the influence
of some natural preparations on the protein and dry matter content in the sweet
pepper fruits. Fruits of sweet pepper (cv. Roberta F1) were the object of research.
The natural preparations from garlic extract (Bioczos Plynny), grapefruit extract
(Biosept 33 SL), sea algae (Bio-algeen S90 Plus) and blastospores of Aureobasidium
pullulans ( Boni Protect Forte) were used for protection of pepper plants. Determination
of protein and dry matter in pepper fruits was made during the middle of the
The presented results indicated small differences in protein and dry
matter content between the fruits from control combinations and those protected
with natural preparations. It belongs to ascertain, that none of the applied
natural preparations had a significant effect on the content of protein and dry
matter in pepper fruits. Therefore, it should be stated that the application
of tested preparations cannot decrease the quality of produced pepper and that
the application of natural products does not result in the reduce the nutritional
value of pepper, regarding proteins and dry matter, therefore they can be used
in the practice.
Key words: Capsicum annuum, biological control, garlic extract, grapefruit extract, sea algae, Aureobasidium pullulans, protein, dry matter.
