The experiment was undertaken to study the Characterization, extraction and foliar spray of fortified humic acid on quality of capsicum. The results showed that, the humic acid extracted from the poultry manure was acidic in pH, low in EC and higher content oftotal carbon, hydrogen, N/C and O/C ratios. Whereas the coffee pulp showed acidic pH, low EC and higher content of nitrogen, oxygen and H/C ratio. The results of the field experiment revealed that significantly higher content of quality parameters viz., total soluble solids (6.44 oBrix) and ascorbic acid (140.64 mg 100 g-1) were recorded in the treatment receiving RDF + FYM applied to soil and 3 foliar sprays of zinc fortified humic acid extracted from poultry manure @0.50% compared to control (only RDF + FYM).

Keywords: Humic acid, Poultry manure, Coffee pulp, FYM, Quality
