Abstract:

The present study was carried out under naturally ventilated polyhouse during 2017-18 with an objective to evaluate the effect of fertigation and liquid plant growth promoting rhizo-microbial consortia on yield of strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duch.). The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design with eleven treatments replicated thrice. Among the different treatments tested, application of 75% RDF (112.5: 75: 90 kg NPK/ha) through fertigation + Azotobacter + Phosphate solubilising bacteria (PSB) + Potassium solubilising bacteria (KSB) in liquid form recorded highest number of flowers per plant (24.21), fruits per plant (21.00), fruit weight (20.90 g), fruit volume (21.67 cc), fruit length (4.78 cm) fruit diameter (3.90 cm) resulting high yield of 387.67 g/plant followed by application of 75% RDF (112.5: 75: 90 kg NPK/ha) through fertigation + Azotobacter + Phosphate solubilising bacteria (PSB) in liquid form that yielded 370.33  g/plant.
