Title : Effect of Nano-chitosan, Nano-micronutrients and Bio capsules on Vegetative growth, flowering and fruiting attributes of Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa) cv. Winter dawn

Abstract :

The Department of Horticulture at Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences in Prayagraj (U.P.) conducted a research study titled "Effect of Nano-chitosan, Nano-micronutrients and Bio capsules on growth, flowering and fruiting attributes of Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa) cv. Winter dawn" during the academic years of 2020–2021 and 2021–2022 at their Research Farm. A Randomised Block Design with three replicates was used to test fifteen treatments that utilised different combinations of N, P, K, nano chitosan, bio capsules, and nano particles of ZnO and FeO. The primary aim of the experiment was to assess the impact of nano technology on the growth, flowering, and fruiting characteristics of strawberry cv. Winter dawn. According to the findings of this study, application of treatment T14 [N P K (RDF) + Nano chitosan 100 ppm (Soil drenching) + Bio capsule 500ppm + foliar application of ZnO and FeO nano particles (NPs)] proved to be most effective treatment to increase growth, flowering, and fruiting traits of strawberry.
