Abstract:
The experiment entitled “The effect of electrical conductivity on growth and development of strawberries grown in deep tank hydroponic systems, a physiological study’’ was carried out to find the optimum Electrical conductivity for the growth and development of strawberries (cv. Elsanta) in deep tank hydroponics system with E.C levels 1.8, (A) 2.5 (B) and 4.0 (C). Among the three E.C levels 1.8, 2.5 and 4.0, the effect of EC 1.8 was found to be the best for vegetative and yield contributing characters along with other studies of root and shoot. The significant effect of EC 1.8 was observed in fruit weight, total yield, marketable yield, marketable fruit numbers, etc. Besides this the E.C supplied had shown an effect on vegetative growth parameters of strawberries like, leaf number, fresh and dry weight of root, fresh and dry weight of plant, crown and trash. The plant relative growth rate was analysed by examining the factors per plant specific leaf area, the higher E.C concentration showed the negative effect on non marketable yield along with non marketable fruit numbers
