Abstract:

A field study was conducted on the Experimental Unit, Department of Horticulture, Tilak Dhari Post Graduate College, Jaunpur during 2017-18 to study the effect of organic manure and bio-fertilizers on floral and commercial yield characters of strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) cv. Chandler. The runners of strawberry were transplanted in the last week of October with a spacing of 40×40 cm. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with ten treatments replicated thrice. Maximum number of runners/plant (6.77) and maximum number of crowns/plant (5.16) were reported in treatment Vermicompost + Azotobacter+ PSB, while minimum number of runners/plant (2.87) and crowns/plant (2.39) were recorded in control (untreated plants). Minimum days to produce first flower (50.99 days) was recorded in treatment FYM + Vermicompost + Poultry manure + Azotobacter + PSB, while maximum days to produce first flower (60.79 days) was recorded in control (untreated plants). Duration of harvesting (63.75 days), number of flowers/plant (59.91) and number of fruit set/plant (49.60) were recorded highest in treatment FYM + Vermicompost + Poultry manure + Azotobacter+ PSB. Fruit set percentage/plant (84.05%) were recorded highest in treatment Vermicompost. Days to fruit set (6.47 days) was recorded minimum in treatment FYM + Vermicompost+ Poultry manure + Azotobacter + PSB, while all floral characters were found minimum in control. Maximum yield/plant (290.56 g), maximum yield/plot (2.90 kg) and maximum yield/ha (145.26 qt) was recorded in treatment Vermicompost + Azotobacter+ PSB while minimum yield was found in control. Benefit cost ratio maximum is found in FYM +Azotobacter + PSB treatment and maximum net income maximum was found in Vermicompost + Azotobacter + PSB treatment.
