Abstract

The present investigation was carried out in the Research orchard of Division of Fruit Science, Faculty of Agriculture, SKUAST-J , Udheywalla, Jammu during 2005-06 and 2006-07 to study the effect of organics FYM integrated with urea and Azotobacter on growth, yield and quality of strawberry cv. Chandler. The strawberry plants attained the height of 21.24cm with 28.16cm plant spread , 74.95cm2 leaf area and fruit size (37.62 x 28.01mm) and fruit weight (15.87g)with the application of 25 per cent nitrogen through FYM augmented with Azotobacter and was at par with the plants supplied with cent per cent nitrogen in the form of urea in combination with Azotobacter. The fruit quality viz. total soluble solids, total sugars, ascorbic acid and anthocyanin content was highest in fruits obtained from plants supplied with 25 per cent nitrogen through FYM + 75 per cent nitrogen in the form of urea + Azotobacter recording 6.81 oBrix, 4.73 per cent, 73.71mg/100g fresh berries and 0.191 OD respectively. Maximum yield of 372.89g per plant was obtained with the application of cent per cent nitrogen in the form of urea along with Azotobacter whereas 358.43g fruits per plant were recorded with the application of 25 per cent nitrogen in the form of FYM + 75 per cent through urea + Azotobacter and were at par with each other.
