Abstract: The present study entitled “Periodic response of vegetative growth of strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duch.) cv. Camarosa to salicylic acid and triacontanol”. Treatments consisted of three levels of salicylic acid (0, 1 and 2mM) and three levels of triacontanol (0, 5 and 10µM), constituting total 9 treatment combinations. Results revealed that the exogenous application of salicylic acid as well as triacontanol had significant effect on vegetative growth of strawberry cv. Camarosa compared to control, although the interaction effect of these two growth regulators was non-significant for all the parameters studied. Among the salicylic acid treatments, the salicylic acid @ 2mM resulted maximum plant height, plant spread, leaf area and number of leaves per plant. Among the triacontanol treatments, application of triacontanol @10 µM resulted maximum plant height, plant spread, leaf area and number of leaves per plant. The present study indicated that strawberry showed positive responses to exogenous application of salicylic acid and triacontanol in terms of enhanced vegetative growth. It is therefore concluded that the salicylic acid @ 2mM and triacontanol @10 µM was effective in enhancing overall growth of strawberry cv. Camarosa.
