Abstract: Background Anamnesis and homeopathic repertorization are important steps for the collection of symptoms and for the selection of the suitable medicine to cure vegetables presenting pathologies or changes in homeostasis. Aims The objective of this study was to carry out observation, anamnesis and homeopathic repertorization of bell pepper plants and its cultivation environment and select the simillimum medicine for the culture. Methods The study was performed at the Research and Extension Center in Agroecology of Ressacada Experimental Farm - Center of Agrarian Sciences, Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) in Florianópolis, Brazil.  The selection of symptoms were based on the characteristics  of the diseases observed in the plants and modalized by evidenced characteristics in the environment. Symptoms were chosen by the mechanical method without hierarchization, and without a master  symptom, and after their analogy with the symptoms described in the Homeopathic Materia Medica. Results The choice for Calcarea carbonica and Sulphur drugs was based on the number of covered symptoms and the score obtained during the digital repertorization performed by the software HomeoPro®. The chosen potency, 30 CH, was based on the miasmatic magnitude presented by the symptoms. Conclusion The analogy of symptoms found in the agricultural organism with the symptoms described in the Homeopathic Materia Medica presents a promising path for choosing medicine for the cure of diseases in vegetables. The choice of the appropriate homeopathic medicine for agricultural crops must represent the symptomatic totality presented by the plant and by the environment in the homeopathic repertorization.
