Research was carried out in research greenhouse of Department of Horticulture, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Selcuk. Delta-07 pepper was used as trial material and, a total of 6 different which consisted from N 52/1, N17/3, Fe 43, F 21/3, 637 Ca bacteria races and control were used as application. According to the results of study, while yield per da and number of fruit per plant were found important, fruit length, fruit size, plant length, root neck diameter were found unimportant as statistically. Root, fruit and leaf nutrient analysis of N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Fe, Cu, Zn and Mn contents were significant in statistical terms. The highest yield per da was obtained from the application N 52/1 with 3872 kg.da-1. At least yield was obtained from N 17/3 bacteria application with 2354 kg.da-1. Number of fruits per plant, while the most fruit was taken from N 52/1bacteria application with 89.53 per plant, while N 17/3 bacteria application reached 56.8 per plant. As a result of mineral content analysis, while N 17/3 and F-21/3 bacteria applications increased macro nutrient uptake, F 21/3 bacteria application showed positive results in micro-nutrient uptake. The results of study implicated that, N 52/1 bacteria gave positive response in practice; in addition to N 17/3, F 21/3 and 637 Ca bacteria applications had positive effects on mineral content of pepper.
