Abstract—In this study, which was carried on in controlled circumstances, the effects of the increasing doses of vermicompost implementation [0 (VC1), 3 (VC2), 5 (VC3), 7(VC4), %] on the P and K contents of pepper (capsicum annuum L.) and eggplant (solanum melongena L.) have been investigated. When P and K analysis results of pepper and eggplants analyzed were observed, it has been realized that there is a linear increase in both element values with vermicompost applied at increasing rates. While the phosphorus and potassium contents of pepper plant were 0.0162% and 3.0454%, respectively, when the lowest dose (VC1) was considered, 0.0393% and 6.2519% respectively for the highest dose (VC4) application. While the phosphorus and potassium contents of the eggplant plant were 0.0121% and 2.1462%, respectively, when the lowest dose (VC1) was considered, 0.0277% and 3.2843% respectively with the highest dose (VC4) application. As a result of the study, organic worm fertilization practices, which are increasingly called vermicompost, have been shown to increase P and K contents in both pepper and eggplant plants. According to this result, it is possible to say that vermicompost can easily be used easily in P and K fertilization in the cultivation of such vegetables.
