Impact of Organic Manures and Biofertilizers on Growth and Quality Parameters of Strawberry cv. Chandler

Received Date:02 March 2015, Accepted Date:12 April 2015, Published Date:18 April 2015


Pot experiment on growth and quality parameters of strawberry was conducted at Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Narendra Nagar (Kumarganj), Faizabad, U.P., India to evaluate the effect organic manure (Farm Yard Manure, vermicompost and press mud) and biofertilizers (Azotobacter, phosphate solubilizing bacteria and Azospirillum). Each treatment combination has shown significant effects on most of the parameters, but the combination of vermicompost and PSB showed highest plant height (23.59 cm), leaves plant-1 (12.67), primary branches plant-1 (10.50), secondary branches plant-1 (27.35), first flowering (61.06 days), flowers plant-1 (15.33), first fruit setting (72.80 days) and fruits plant-1 (8.33). Similarly, the treatments combination of vermicompost and PSB significantly affected the Total Soluble Solids (TSS) (10.75°
