The objective of this research was to examine the influence of selected biofertilisers on the production capacity of pepper of the variety of „Sofiiska kapiya” cultivated under the conditions of organic agriculture. This experiment was carried out from 2010 until 2011 on the experimental field of the Agroecological Centre at the Agricultural University- Plovdiv on the alluvial-meadow soil. The study included biofertilisers- Boneprot, Lumbrical, Baikal EM- 1Y and Seasol, which belong to the list of permitted biofertilisers in accordance with the EU Regulation (EC) No. 889/2008. Under the impact of the applied additional fertilisation with liquid biofertilisers, the highest yield was reported for the variant fed with the biofertiliser Baikal EM- 1Y on the basic fertilisation Lumbrical- 2036 kg/da, and 1893 kg/da (2011). The combined application of the biofertilisers on the basic fertilisation had a stimulating effect on the pepper yield.
