Abstract:
Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa), a member of the Rosaceae family. A soft fruited herbaceous perennial plant with short days, strawberry may be effectively cultivated at optimum day temperatures of 22 to 25 °C and optimal night temperatures of 7 to 13 °C. It spreads by runners, which is a natural method of propagation. The use of runners as propagation material is more efficient than the use of seed propagation. Strawberry is an aggregate fruit containing seeds on the top of a red fleshy receptacle, according to botany, which grows in soil, which makes it more susceptible to pathogens such as soil-borne disease and other diseases. When compared to other growing media such as perlite, FYM, rice husk, coco peat, bio-char, and pumice, the soil's water-holding capacity, porosity, and pH are all significantly lower than they are in the soil. These growing media have a high water-holding capacity, high porosity, a balanced pH, and are free of soil-borne pathogens, which allows for better growth, development, and productivity. The use of liquid organic manures, such as Jeevamrit, can aid in the improvement of crop growth and yield.
