The SPAD-502 meter (Konica Minolta, Inc., Tokyo, Japan), the atLEAF+ sensor (FT Green LLC, Wilmington, DE, USA), the MC-100 Chlorophyll Concentration Meter (Apogee Instruments, Inc., Logan UT, USA), and the Multiplex 3.6 sensor (Force-A, Orsay, France), were evaluated in a sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum ‘Melchor’) crop in Almeria, southeastern Spain. There were five N treatments of different N concentrations (very deficient, deficient, optimal, excessive and very excessive) in nutrient solutions applied by fertigation.
