Investigation was undertaken to assess the effect of PGRs on the performance of strawberry cv. Camarosa. The plants under study were subjected to foliar application of PGRs with 10 treatments viz., T1 : Control (water spray), T2 : GA3 at 50 ppm, T3 : GA3 at 75 ppm, T4 : GA3 at 100 ppm, T5 : NAA at 50 ppm, T6 : NAA at 75 ppm, T7 : NAA at 100 ppm, T8 : GA3 at 50 ppm + NAA at 50 ppm, T9 : GA3 at 50 ppm + NAA at 75 ppm and T10 : GA3 at 50 ppm + NAA at 100 ppm. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three replications. The results revealed that the plants sprayed with 50 ppm (GA3) showed increased plant height, leaf area, number of flowers, fruit set, number of fruits per plant, yield, fruit size, TSS and ascorbic acid as compared to other treatments.
Key words : Strawberry, PGRs, vegetative growth, flowering, yield
