- ... We investigated the effect of supplying nitrogen, as NO₃– or as NO₃–/NH₄⁺, on the composition of fruits of sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum L. cv. Melchor) plants grown with different CO₂ concentrations ([CO₂]): ambient or elevated (800 μmol mol–¹). The results show that the application of NH₄⁺ and high [CO₂] affected the chroma related to the concentrations of chlorophylls. The concentrations of Ca, ...
