In order to introduce effectiveness substrate and select suitable cultivar with high yield in hydroponic cultivate system for growing green peppers with the scientific name Capsicum annum L. an experiment was done as a factorial experiment in completely randomized design with four replications on Figaro, LiricaRZ, Sereno's cultivars and three substrates include vermiculite + sand, peat + perlite and rock wool. The experiment was carried out in the Islamic Azad University, Jiroft branch, Iran, in 2011. Results showed that there was significant deference between interaction effect of green peppers and substrate in their leaf weight, root weight and dry stem and leaf weight in level of 5% and dry root weight in level of 1%. Correlation coefficient showed that there was direct relation between yield and number of leaf, fresh and dry weight of stem and leaf, dry and fresh weight of root in level of 1% and number of leaf in level of 5%. According to these results, substrate of peat + perlite had most effect on growing traits and yield of green pepper.
