Effect of bio capsules, FYM and vermicompost on growth, yield and fruit quality of strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) cv. winter dawn

Author(s): Sreyansh Singh Chauhan and Dr. Saket Mishra
Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Effect of Bio Capsules, FYM and Vermicompost on Growth, Yield and Quality of Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) cv. Winter Dawn” was conducted during October-February 2023-24 at the Central Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh) Which was carried out in Statistical Design adopted for the experiment was Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications ten treatments combinations. The result of present investigation shows that the treatment T9 100% RDF + 35% FYM (2 t/ha) + Bio Capsule (400 ppm) + 20% vermicompost (0.4 t/ha) outstands in all the aspects with significant results in Growth, Yield and Quality parameters. Quality parameters like Plant height (27.52 cm), Petiole length (14.81 cm), Number of leaves (16.33), Plant spread East-West (23.53 cm), Plant spread North-South (23.63 cm), Flowering period (46.77 days), Number of flowers per plant (29.93), Number of fruits per plant (15.67), Fresh weight of fruit (23.11 gm), Fruit yield per plant (309.57 gm), Fruit yield per plot (1.86 kg), Polar diameter (4.90 cm), Radial diameter (3.59 cm), TSS (9.99 oBrix), Ph (3.43), Specific gravity (1.71), Ascorbic acid (54.92) which was followed by T7 100% RDF + 60% FYM (3.6 t/ha) + 40% Vermicompost (0.8 t/ha). The lowest observation was recorded in T0 Control. Treatment with FYM, Vermicompost and Bio Capsule improves growth, yield and quality to a lesser extent as compared to the control.
