GOMEZ ENRIQUEZ, Adriana; ROJAS PALACIOS, Hernán; VALLEJO CABRERA, Franco Alirio  and  ESTRADA SALAZAR, Edgar Iván. Water requeriments of pepper in Candelaria, Valle del Cauca, Colombia. Acta Agron. [online]. 2010, vol.59, n.4, pp.442-448. ISSN 0120-2812.

A trial was carried out in order to determining the water requirement of the pepper Capsicum annuum variety UNAPAL- Serrano in the zone of Candelaria -Valley of the Cauca (Colombia) and to evaluate the efficiency of the microevaporímeter 'MIEVHR' as estimator of the evaporation. It was determined that the pepper requires 425mm of water during the cycle vegetative obtaining an efficiency of the use of the water of 5.32 Kg/m3 of fresh fruit and 0.5 kg/m3 in terms of dry matter. Besides, it was verified the microevaporímeter efficiency 'MIEVHR' as tool for programming of the irrigation.

Keywords : Capsicum annuum; evaporation; water requeriment; evaporimeter.
