Abstract

The results of effect of plant bio-regulators on yield and yield attributing characters of strawberry CV. Chandler showed that at 75 DAT the plant height attained maximum of 20.50 cm, spread (25.53 cm) leaf number per plant (23.00), petiole length (0.20 cm), leaf area (136.30 cm2) and yield (356.56 g/plant) respectively, of strawberry was obtained highest with the application of GA 75 mg/L while, cycocel 750 mg/lresulted in minimum days taken to first flowering (61.66 DAT) and fruit formation (66.66 DAT). The maximum number of flowers per plant were recorded as 30.22 and number of berries (24.80) with application of GA 75 mg/L.
