Abstract:

Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) varieties were evaluated to study the variability in vegetative and floral characters at the experimental farm of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture and Technology Modipuram, Meerut during 2014-2015. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) and comprised of eleven genotypes. The results showed that different strawberry cultivars exhibited marked variation in the growth and flowering characteristics. Maximum plant height was recorded in Chandler (24.99 cm) followed by Dana (22.27 cm) and plant spread in Brighton (39.01 cm), however, number of runners were produced maximum in Belrubi (11.38 per plant) followed by Chandler (11.28 per plant), which also recorded maximum number of leaves per plant in Douglas (15.73), leaf area in Etna (121.18 cm2). The date of initiation of first flowering was recorded in cultivars Gorella, Belrubi and Brighton while, the cultivar Chandler produced maximum number of flowers per runner (28.86) and duration of flowering (36 days). The study was carried out with the view to study the variability in growth characters and to find out suitable strawberry cultivar under western Uttar Pradesh condition.
