This study aimed at examining the effect of fertilizer and water application through leaves to increase the growth and yield of chili pepper under drought stress conditions. The study was arranged in a split plot design with three replications. The main plot was plant cultivar (Kastilo, Lado and Romario), while the subplot was the application of fertilizer through leaves (no fertilizer and no water, application of 5 mL·L-1 foliar fertilizer, and water only). The results showed that different cultivars of chili peppers gave a positive response to the application of water and fertilizer through the leaves under drought condition (50% of field capacity), and the application of 5 mL·L-1 foliar fertilizer produced better growth and yields. Application of liquid fertilizer through leaves increased the growth of chili pepper by 57.43% - 82.49% and the production by 81.59% - 94.09%. The number of branches and fruit weight were strongly affected by the application of liquid fertilizer through leaves. The cultivar that were most responsive to the application of foliar fertilizer under drought stress conditions was Lado, followed by Kastilo and Romario. The Lado cultivar showed higher N, K, Ca and Mg contents than Kastilo and Romario.
