Abstract:

The present experiment was conducted to study the influence of temperature on plant growth, flowering and fruiting of strawberry under agro-climate of Bihar. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with four different planting dates viz. 15th October, 1st November, 15th November and 1st December as the main plot and three varieties like Sweet Charlie, Festival, and Winter Dawn under sub plot with three replications. The maximum plant growth in terms of plant height (32.15 cm), plant spread (30.53 cm) and number of leaves per plant (48.21) was recorded at 20 days interval and the minimum growth was noted in Sweet Charlie at 1st December planting a similar trend of result was recorded pertaining to flower and fruit set behavior. Variety Winter Dawn was the earliest to flower in 15th October planting. As per data pertaining to the first fruit initiation and fruiting period was also noted in variety Winter Dawn (7th November) in the 15th October planting during the cropping season. Thus the planting time from 15th October to 1st November was found ideal for the planting of strawberry in Bihar.
