Abstract:
Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) belongs to the family Rosaceae. The present investigation was carried out at the Horticulture Research Center, of the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture and Technology, Meerut during 2016-2017. Three varieties of strawberry namely Chandler, Selva and Confictura were planted at spacing of 50x30cm in a plot size 1.5x2.0m during October, 2016.Maximum plant height and leaves per plant were recorded in the variety Confictura which was followed by Selva. The variability among the varieties were due to genetic makeup of the different varieties The maximum leaf area (107.2cm2) was recorded in the variety Selva which was followed by Confictura. The minimum leaf area (103.59 cm2) was recorded in variety Chandler. The maximum days for flower initiation (56.51 days) was recorded in the variety Confictura which was followed by Chandler. The minimum days (52.62 days) was recorded in variety Selva. The maximum days (67.05) was recorded in the variety Chandler which was followed by Confictura. The minimum days (62.55) was recorded in variety Selva. A minute observation recorded among the treatments evince that the application of Gibberellic acid (GA3) 75ppm + fermented cow dung@10% was found to be the best treatment in response to peak flowering among different varieties of strawberry. The minimum fruit setting period (4.80 days) were recorded in the variety Selva and Confictura both with the application of Gibberellic acid (GA3) 75ppm + fermented cow dung@10% while the maximum (11.0 days) was recorded in the variety Chandler with the application of Gibberellic acid (GA3) 25ppm + fermented cow dung@10%. So, Selva and Confictura were found to be the earliest variety in the response 0f fruit setting. The variability among the varieties were due to their genetic makeup.
