Effect of different organic media on growth and establishment of strawberry (Fragaria ananassa) cv. winter dawn under East-Singhbhum (Jharkhand) agro - climatic conditions

Kiran Mandal, Vijay Bahadur and Arti Beena Ekka
Strawberry is a very important aggregate fruit of India. These days, this fruit is happening to be well liked and marketable. Due to imbalanced nutrition, diseases and pest attack and lack of adoption of advanced technology or improved production techniques the productivity of strawberry has become very low. Among these factors, probably nutrition is a key factor affecting the productivity of strawberry plants. Imbalanced and non-judicious use of chemical fertilizers is a common practice adopted by the farmers. The exercise of organic fertilizers with inorganic fertilizers as an additive is a modern approach to keep up a balance, regulate cropping and with a view of getting superior end result.
Hence, a field experiment entitled effect of Different Organic Media on Growth and Establishment of Strawberry (Fragaria ananassa) cv. Winter dawn under East-Singhbhum (Jharkhand) Agro - Climatic Conditionsʼʼ was conducted during the October 2020 to February 2021, at the Experimental field, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, East-Sighbhum, Jharkhand. The experiment consisted of nine different combinations of treatments of organic manures and inorganic fertilizers which was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications. Different proportions of organic manures and inorganic fertilizers viz., Vermicompost (25%, 75%, 100%), Azatobacter (25%, 75%, 100%), Trichoderma (25%, 75%, 100%) and RDF (25%, 75%, 100%) were applied. Result revealed that the treatment T7 (Vermicompost 50%+ NPK 50%+ Trichoderma) was found significantly superior over all other treatments with respect to plant growth and development characteristics including survival percentage. The plant growth parameters like plant height(22.08cm), number of leaves per plant (35.00), number of runners per plant (12.33) and plant spread (35.95cm2), leaf area (29.53cm2) and days to first flowering (24.68 days), survival percentage (100%) increased significantly under T4 treatment in strawberry cv. Winter dawn.
The knowledge regarding the utility of merging these fertilizers in fruit crops is very minimal. Under prevailing circumstances it is the duty of the researchers to give rise to the information on fruitfulness and economics of these organic and fertilizers in temperate fruit crop like strawberry.
