Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken at SHUATS, Allahabad during 2013-14 and 2014-15 to study the effect of bio-fertilizers, vermicompost and Trichoderma in field strawberry (Fragaria x annanasa Duch.) cv. Sweet Charlie. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with twelve treatments and three replications. Bio-fertilizers help in better utilization of added inorganic fertilizers thus reduce its level of application as well as reduce the deleterious effect of harsh chemical residues that the inorganic fertilizers leave in the soil. Vermicompost when applied to soil improve the soil physical properties, soil pH, water holding capacity and add micro and macro nutrients to the soil thus increase the nutrient availability and its ultimate absorption by plant. Trichoderma spp. is very effective in controlling the soil born diseases in fruit crops. The highest yield per plantwas recorded in the combination of T11 (5 kg ha-1 Trichoderma + 2.5 ton ha-1 Vermicompost + 7 kg ha-1 Azotobactor + 6 kg ha-1 PSB + 10 kg ha-1 VAM). The maximum cost benefit ratio (1:3.97) was found in T11(5 kg ha-1 Trichoderma + 2.5 ton ha-1 Vermicompost + 7 kg ha-1 Azotobactor + 6 kg ha-1 PSB + 10 kg ha-1 VAM).
