Abstract:
The present investigation was carried on entitled "Effect of exogenous application of salicylic acid and triacontanol on growth characters and yield of strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duch.) cv. Camarosa ". Treatments contained three levels of salicylic acid (0, 1 and 2 mM) and three levels of triacontanol (0, 5 and 10 µM), constituting 9 treatment combinations. The experiment was laid out in Randomised Complete Block Design (RCBD) with factorial arrangements and replicated thrice. Results revealed that the exogenous usage of salicylic acid and triacontanol had significant impact on different growth characters, fruiting and yield of strawberry as compared to control, although the interaction effect of these two growth regulators was non-significant for all the studied parameters. Among the salicylic acid and triacontanol treatments, the salicylic acid @ 2 mM and triacontanol @10 µM show maximum growth in vegetative characters of strawberry. Both the growth regulators significantly increased floral characters and fruiting characters.
