Effects of Mycorrhizal On The Growth and Yield of Cayenne Pepper (Capsicum frutescens L.)

  • Sumiyati Tuhuteru Petra Baliem Academy of Agricultural Science Wamena, Papua


The requires innovations in increasing the production of cayenne pepper, especially due to the need for more quality land, such as dry land in Wamena. The innovation in question uses biological microorganisms that positively impact plants, such as arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). For this reason, the implementation of this study aims to test the use of mycorrhiza in cayenne pepper planting systems on dry land conditions belonging to farmers in Wamena City. The research was conducted in plastic houses from June to August 2023 using a completely randomized design with one factor, namely the dose of mycorrhizae (20 g, 50 g, 80 g and 120 g). The treatment given was then repeated six replications. The research results were analyzed using ANOVA, and if it shows significant results, the analysis process is continued with the 5% level DMRT test. The results of mycorrhizal treatment had a good impact on increasing the growth and yield of cayenne pepper plants which showed a significant effect compared to plants without mycorrhiza. So that the use of mycorrhiza, even in limited conditions, can increase the growth and yield of cayenne pepper plants and be recommended for future farming systems.
