Abstract:

An investigation entitled “Effect of Plant Growth Regulators and Micronutrients on Vegetative Growth and fruit yield of Strawberry (Fragaria X Ananassa Duch.) cv. Chandler” was carried out at the Central Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Science, Prayagraj, (U.P.) - 211007 during the year 2015-16 and 2016-2017. The experiment was consisting of Chandler variety of Strawberry with each comprising of nineteen treatments replicated thrice. Source of variables were NAA (20ppm); GA3 (75 ppm); BA (benzyl adenine) (20 ppm); Salicylic acid (50 ppm); Boric acid (0.4%); Zinc sulphate (0.4%) and combination of them with control treatment taken as nineteen treatments. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design by randomizing treatments in each replication. As far as the vegetative growth and fruit yield is concerned, application of different treatment of plant growth regulators and micronutrient significantly enhanced the Plant height (cm.), Number of leaves per plant, Petiole length (cm), Plant spread (cm), Yield per plant (g), Yield per plot (Kg.) and Yield per hectare (t) at all successive stages. Maximum Plant height (15.01 and 15.43cm), Number of leaves per plant (20.55 and 21.40), Petiole length (22.56 cm and 24.74 cm), Plant spread (28.71 cm and 29.90 cm), Fruit yield per plant (g) (225.23g and 234.80g), Yield per plot (Kg.) (1.13 and 1.17 Kg) and Yield per hectare (12.84 and 13.38 t) were recorded in successive year with T17 (GA3 75ppm+ Zinc sulphate 0.4% + Boric acid 0.4%) and minimum growth and fruit yield were observed in T1.
