Author(s): Rifat Bhat and Sharbat Hussain
Abstract: An experiment entitled "Effect of organic substrates on growth, yield and quality of strawberry, cv Chandler" was carried out in the polyhouse at the Division of Fruit Science SKUAST-K during the year 2021-22. The investigation involved 07 treatment combinations laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD), having three (3) replications. All organic substrates significantly increased fruit length, fruit diameter, berry set, No. of berries/plant, Total plant yield, TSS, Acidity, Anthocyanin and fruit weight except T1 (Control). The maximum fruit length (3.05 cm), fruit diameter (2.42 cm), Berry set (91.92%), number of berries per plant (21.95), yield (198.80 g/plant) and fruit weight (9.06 g/plant) was recorded from the plants grown on substrate T5 (15 kgs FYM +7.5 kgs VC+ biofertilizers), whereas, minimum fruit length (2.32 cm), fruit diameter (2.15 cm), berry set (84.05%), number of berries per plant (16.66), yield (125.51g/plant), and fruit weight (7.53 g/plant) was recorded in T1 (Control). Hence from current study it can be concluded that combination of FYM+VC+Biofertilizers proved to be the best for organic production of strawberry in passively ventilated greenhouse conditions.
