Abstract:

Strawberry is an attractive, tasty, luscious and nutritious fruit grown in temperate and subtropical climate. Plant growth regulators (PGRs) play important role in strawberry production which regulate plant growth, flowering and increase the yield of crops. In recent years, the interest in strawberry production has increased rapidly because of high price value and more demand. Yield increase in strawberry crops has been obtained through improved varieties, efficient management of fertilizers and various agronomic practices. Growth regulating chemicals are also becoming important in strawberry production for the modification of their vegetative growth, flowering, and fruiting which affect total yield and fruit quality. A structured review of the effect of plant growth regulators on growth, flowering, yield and shelf life, was prepared. Effect of different PGRs, alone and their combinations were explored. Auxins and gibberellins were identified as potent PGRs for improving growth, flowering, yield and post-harvest life parameters. Areas of interest where further research is needed include evaluating the effect of different combination and time of application of PGR and difference in varietal response with the growth regulators treatment. Hence, there is further need to evaluate the effect of growth regulators on strawberry.
