Abstract:
An investigation was carried out at Krishi Vigyan Kendra of Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Gayeshpur, Nadia, West Bengal with eight strawberry cultivars (Barak, Crystal, Gilt, Hader, Sabrina, Sabrina 1, Sweet Charlie and Winter Dawn) to find out their performance in new alluvial zone of West Bengal. Wide variation was noted in plant height (14.16-24.4 cm), plant spread (27.27- 41.9 cm), number of runners per plant (2.26- 5.84), leaf area (79.21-113.85 cm2) and number of leaves per plant (24.83-35.32), fruit yield per plant (245.27- 1305.7 kg), fruit yield per ha (11.78-62.73 q), fruit weight (14.84- 29.23 g) and breath (2.85- 4.32) and fruit length (3.95-5.02 cm). A prominent and significant variation was also obtained in chemical composition of fruits viz. total soluble solids (4.95-7.81 0brix), total sugar (3.71-5.07%), titratable acidity (0.48-0.93%), ascorbic acid (42.0-70.85 mg/100 ml juice) and anthocyanin (11.46-37.99 mg/100 ml juice). It may be concluded that the performances of Sweet Charlie and Winter Dawn are superior in growth, yield and fruit quality as compared to other cultivars in new alluvial zone of West Bengal.
