Abstract:

Albinism is a serious disorder of strawberry in which fruits appear bloated, develop poor color flavor and become susceptible to fruit rot during storage. Many factors have been reported to be associated with albinism, but vigorous vegetative growth of the plant is considered as the primary factor. Strawberry is one of the most delicate fruit, which is grown commercially in temperate climatic conditions of the world. For its successful cultivation, mulching is considered as most useful cultural practice. Mulching helps in better conservation and utilization of hydrothermal regimes, which helps in better growth and yield. Three mulch materials (Black polyethylene, White polyethylene, and Paddy Straw) were evaluated to reduce albinism in five cultivars of strawberry. Fruits suffering from albinism appear bloated, develop poor colour, are liable to serve damage during harvesting and become highly susceptible to fruit rot during storage. The incidence of albinism was highest (38.60%) with black polyethylene and lowest with paddy straw (22.65%). Among cultivars, Erna had the highest incidence of albinism (50.60%) followed by chandler (41.60%), where as Sweet Charlie had the least.
