Abstract


A study was carried out to investigate the effect of gibberellic acid (GA3) and blossom removal on flowering and yield characteristics of strawberry cv. Belrubi under subtropical region. Various parameters were monitored with the application of three concentrations of GA3 50 ppm, 100 ppm and 150 ppm and three levels of blossom removal viz., without deblossoming, partial deblossoming and full blossoming. Results showed that the GA3 150 ppm treated plants took minimum days to initiate flowering (54.22/ 53.55) and bud formation (60.77/60.08), meanwhile highest number of flowers per plant (23.64/22.56), fruit yield per plant (288.74/ 269.89g) and (17.67/ 16.50 q/ha) were registered with 50ppm GA3 both the years experimentation. From this study, it can be concluded that 50 ppm GA3 treated plants showed improved the flowering and fruit yield per plants
