Abstract:
Strawberry is an attractive, luscious tasty and nutritious fruit with a distinct and pleasant aroma, and delicate flavour. It is an man made hybrid. The present experiment entitled “Effect of organic manure, NPK and mulching on yield and fruit quality of strawberry”. The experiment was conducted at farm of Agriculture and Allied Industries, Rama University Mandhna Kanpur in the year 2018-2019. It was carried out in Randomized Block Design with 10 treatments and each treatment replicated thrice. It is a basically temperate crop but these days the crop is being grown in all kind of climate. This area lies under the upper gangetic plains region of Uttar Pradesh at an elevation of 126 m above mean sea level. This research aim was effect of the combination between organic manure (FYM & Vermicompost), NPK and mulching (White polythene & Black polythene) for better growth, yield and quality of strawberry and effect of organic manure, NPK and mulching on physico chemical quality of strawberry. The investigation revealed that minimum time of flower first (49.75days), maximum canopy spread per plant (51.52), maximum number of crowns per plant (3.25), maximized the number of stolen per plant (2.53), maximum fruit yield (358.8 q/ha), Longest berries (3.78 cm), heaviest berry (11.90g), while tallest plant (24.65cm), maximum number of leaves (22.66), maximum juice percent (93.83%) were recorded in Vermicompost 2.5 kg/plot + NPK 15:8:6 gm/plot + black polythene mulch (T9) treated plants,. But the berries of maximum width (2.517 cm) were recorded in FYM 10 kg/plot + black polythene mulch (T7) treated plants.
