Organic farmingisaproductionsystemthatmaintainsthehealthofland, ecosystems,andpeople. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions,instead of using resources with side effects as in conventional production. Crop management inorganic agriculture differs from conventional production primarily because synthetic preparationsfor plant protection, mineral fertilizers, and seeds of genetically engineered varieties may not beusedin organic production.The research aims to compare the effect of the method of pepper grow in the open field wherecompletely natural conditions prevail, with organic and conventional methods of cultivation andtoestablish how it affectsthe quality of thefruit.For the experimental work, the culture of pepper belonging to the top of the most sought-aftervegetables in Bosnia and Herzegovina was taken. The most important conclusions made after theresearch work results are: Fruit weight and yield are proportional to the method of cultivation,meaning the variety and hybrid had the highest values in conventional cultivation, as well as fruitlength.The fruit diameter and the pericarp thickness have approximate values between the twomethods of cultivation, the amount of vitamin C in the Amanda variety in organic farming istwice less than in conventional farming, while the Dimentio hybrid has a significantly highervalue of vitamin C, especially in conventional farming, Higher values of acids are recorded intheorganiccultivationmethod.Inthetestedsamples,thetotalamountofsugar(totalinvert)is lower or approximately equal to the natural invert (reducing sugars), and a higher value ofsugarwas recorded in conventional peppercultivation.
