In this study was researched the influence of the pyrophyllite as a nutrient, bio-stabilizer, soil conditioner, as the adsorbent in different combinations and correlated standard quantitative relations with mineral fertilizers (NPK 15 : 15 : 15), on the yield and nutritional value of Bravo cabbage (Brassica oleraceae var. capitata). Within the examined factor of fertilization treatment, the following variances were represented: a1 – 800 kg ha–1 NPK 15 : 15 : 15 (control plot), a2 – 800 kg ha–1 NPK 15 : 15 : 15 + 2200 kg ha–1 pyrophyllite, a3 – 800 kg ha–1 NPK 15 : 15 : 15 + 1700 kg ha–1 of pyrophyllite, a4 – 800 kg ha–1 NPK 15 : 15 : 15 + 1200 kg ha–1 of pyrophyllite, a5 – 800 kg ha–1 NPK 15 : 15 : 15 + 700 kg ha–1 of pyrophyllite. The purpose of this research was to determine the extent to which the components of the yield and nutritional quality of cabbage depend on the different applied doses of pyrophyllite. The results indicate the fact that the treatments with the application of higher participation of pyrophyllite had a positive effect on the weight and quality of the cabbage head in relation to the control variance.
