Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out at the experimental field of Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir during the years 2014-15 and 2015-16 to study the combined effect of nitrogen (0, 75, 150 kg ha-1), phosphorus (0, 50, 100kg ha-1) and biofertilizers (no inoculants, Azotobacter sp., Bacillus sp., Pseudomonas sp. and Glomus sp.) on macro and micro nutrient uptake in strawberry. The experiment was laid out in completely randomised design (factorial) with 45 treatment combinations and 5 replications. Treatment (T42) recorded significantly higher nitrogen uptake of 0.55g and 0.69g in 2014-15 and 2015-16 respectively. Higher value of phosphorus uptake (0.11g) was recorded under the treatments T41, T42, T44 and T45 during the first year while as T41, T42 and T45 recorded significantly higher value of 0.13g during the second year. The treatment (T44) recorded significantly higher potassium uptake to the tune of 0.68g and 0.78g in 2014-15 and 2015-16 respectively. Significantly higher uptake of zinc (11.52 ppm and 12.25 ppm), copper (4.82 ppm and 5.30 ppm), manganese (16.86 ppm and 18.40 ppm) and iron (70.93 and 76.60 ppm) during both the years of experimentation was observed under the treatment (T45).
