In the national scenario, Cucurbita pepo L’s
cultivation emerges as an important vegetable in our economy. The vegetable has
a relationship with the Cucurbitaceae family. It is like a cackrey, watermelon,
melon, and cucumber  (Filgueira, 2008).
The agricultural economic amount develops from the unripe fruits
commercialization. In this research, the fertilizer we will be using is
Cucurbita pepo L. seeds for Solanum melongena cultivation. There is mineral
zinc in its seeds. There will be more zinc when it is unshelled. (


You can get phosphorus, magnesium, manganese
and copper in pumpkin seeds. Phosphorus helps plants grow by converting other
nutrients into helpful building blocks. It is usually found in fertilizer. ( Magnesium’s nutrient is important to
plants. It has a big role for plants to function. One of it is in the
photosynthesis process, as it is the Chlorophyll’s building block, which make
green leaves come out. ( Manganese is a main contributor to various
biological systems, also photosynthesis, respiration and nitrogen conversion in
plants. Copper contains small quantity of micronutrients that is needed for the
growth of the plants. ( 
Antioxidant can defend the plant from damage which can be found in pumpkin
seeds. Carotenoids and vitamin E are example of antioxidants. (
Pumpkin seeds consist of tocopherol. Per 100 g. of it consist at least 35.10

responsible for the orange and yellow color for some vegetables and fruits.
Pumpkin seeds contains carotenoids. In its seeds we can also find dietary
fibers. Pumpkin seeds represents four fatty acids. 16.41% of palmitic acid is included
and 11.14% of stearic acid which are the saturated fatty acids. It also
includes the unsaturated fatty acids which are consisting  of 18.14% oleic and 52.69% linoleic acid. (
Another fact with the seed is that it is rich in nutrients, has high content of
protein and its micronutrients are plenty. Pumpkin seeds’ chemical substances
are total sugars, protein, fiber, fat and moisture levels were 0.11%, 33.82%,
21.97%, 8.46%, correspondingly. (
