Abstract:

Organic agricultural techniques are utilized globally to protect our environment and prevent health issues resulting from pesticides and hazardous chemicals. Traits such as plant growth characteristics (leaves/plant and plant spread), yield characteristics (flower buds, fruits per plant and fruit yield tons/ha) and quality characteristics (juice content, total sugar content, vitamin C and specific gravity) were observed. The runners of strawberry cv. Douglas were planted in the last week of October with a spacing of (30x60cm).The investigations was laid out in a randomized block design with five treatment combinations replicated thrice. The data regarding the different growth parameters observed at 30, 45, 60, 90, 105, 120 days after planting, yield parameters at 45, 60, 90, 120, 135, 150 days after planting and their quality parameters clearly indicate that the application of integrated sources of nutrients significantly affect the vegetative, reproductive and yield characteristics of the strawberry plant. However the manure fertilizer combination under treatment T4 (1/4 RD by Fertilizers and 3/4 RD by manures) was found to be the best treatment with regard to integrated and combined application of nutrient resources for strawberry cultivation in India. Considering overall performances, study suggested that vermicompost is a potential source of plant nutrients for sustainable strawberry production.
