Land Preparation
1.

Prepare the land thoroughly by plowing and harrowing. Apply lime 1 month before panting if
soil pH is below 5.6 at the rate of 3-5 tons per hectare.

2.

Prepare 1.0m wide bed spaced 0.5m in between at 30cm high

3.

Mix decomposed animal manure or compost at rate of 1.0kg/linear meter bed

4.

Apply basal fertilizer 2 bags 46-0-0, 2.5 bags 18-46-0, and 2.75 bags 0-0-60 per hectar

5.

Cover with plastic mulch right after the fertilizer is applied; use bamboo staple sticks to fix the
edges.

6.

Make holes just before transplanting; 2 rows at around 50cm apart at 45cm between hills.

Seedling Production
1.

Fill seedling trays with sowing medium. Sowing medium can either be peat moss or potting mix
prepared from garden soil, compost, washed coconut coir, rice hull and or sand. Be sure to
have good water holding capacity and good drainage.

2.

Sow one seed per cell in seedling trays. One hectare needs 200g seeds.

3.

Cover seedlings with insect proof net or place inside screen house

4.

Water seedlings every morning or as needed (not too wet, not too dry) and use fine sprinkler

5.

Drench with foliar fertilizer when two true leaves appear.

6.

To prevent damping-off drench with propamocarb hydrochloride (Previcur-N)

7.

Harden seedlings 4-5days prior to transplanting by decreasing the amount of water and
gradually exposing them to direct sunlight.

Transplanting
1.

Under good condition, four weeks-old seedling with 4-5 true leaves is ready for transplanting.
Transplant late in the afternoon

2.

Irrigate immediately to establish good root-soil contact

3.

If there is intense heat, fill the hole with soil up to the level of plastic mulch

Irrigation
1.

Sweet pepper is less tolerant to drought. Irrigate weekly during dry season. Closer interval
when evaporation is high or when crop is flowering and/or setting fruit.

2.

Furrow or Drip irrigation is recommended. If overhead irrigation is used, avoid late afternoon or
evening irrigation.

3.

On rainy season, drain fields quickly after heavy rain

Fertilization
Two weeks after transplanting
1.5 bag 46-0-0 or 3.25 bags 21-0-0 per hectare. Apply 10 grams in small hole near the base and cover
with soil.
Four weeks after transplanting
Mix 0.5 bag 46-0-0, 2 bags 18-46-0, 2.5 bags 0-0-60 and apply 10 grams per hill. Dibble a hole 10 cm
from the base of the plant, place the fertilizer mix and cover with soil.
Six weeks after transplanting
apply 2 bags 46-0-0 or 4.5 bags 21-0-0 whatever fertilizer is available. Place in a hole 10cm from the
base and cover with soil
1.

Repeat application if in 2 weeks interval if plants are still vigorous and healthy to prolong
harvest period

2.

Apply foliar fertilizer to boast plant and further increase yield.

Trellising & Weeding


1.

Construct trellis using bamboo poles or stake at 2.5 meters apart on both sides of the bed.

2.

Attach G.I. wire to bamboo post and tie sagging stems and branches on G.I. wire using twine or
blue string.

3.

Do hand weeding when needed. At vegetative stage canals between bed can be sprayed with
herbicide.

Harvesting
Harvest in the morning. Depending on the market requirements, harvest green or breaker stage at 3-4
days interval.
