Abstract:

Strawberry is being promoted for year round production due to its health properties and attractive fruit, and this has been made possible through soilless cultivation. Production of strawberry cultivar ‘Sweet Charlie’ under soilless system along with control (soil) in three types of containers with two different sizes in a passively ventilated greenhouse was attempted. Different combinations of substrates and containers significantly influenced the vegetative growth in strawberry, whereas, container size had significant effect only on number of leaves, plant spread and crown diameter. The maximum, number of leaves (10.45 and 15.42), petiole length (9.19 cm and 9.18 cm), plant height (15.26 cm and 16.27 cm), plant spread (27.43 cm and 30.24 cm) and crown diameter (17.44 mm and 18.10 mm) were observed in S2 (cocopeat + perlite + vermicompost, 3:1:1) followed by S1 (cocopeat + perlite + vermicompost, 2:1:1), whereas, minimum growth was observed in control (soil).In future, these experimental results will prove very useful to find out most suitable substrate combination and container for better vegetative growth in strawberry.
