Abstract:
An experiment was carried out during 2017-2018 and to study the effect of organic manures and inorganic fertilizers on plant growth, yield and quality of Strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa) cv. Shimla Delicious under mid-hill conditions of Uttarakhand. There were 9 treatments replicated thrice in randomized complete block design. Treatments comprise different doses of organic manures and inorganic Fertilizers. Plant spread, leaves per plant, duration of fruiting, no. of flowers per plant, no. fruits per plant, percentage of fruit set, fruit yield per plot and physicochemical characteristics of plant i.e. TSS, reducing sugar, non reducing sugar and total sugar were also found maximum under the treatment 75% Organic Manure FYM+ Inorganic Fertilizer NPK (T8). While maximum no. of runners per plant found among the treatment 75% Organic Manure (Poultry Manure) +25% Inorganic Fertilizer NPK (T4). However the maximum acidity of fruit juice (0.72 %) was observed in treatment 25% Organic Manure (FYM) + 75% Inorganic Fertilizer RDF (T6).
