Response of Strawberry (Fragaria ananassa) cv. Chandler to Different Doses of Gibberellic Acid
Muhammad Sudheer Tariq, Asghari Bano and Khalid Mahmood Qureshi
Abstract: Effects of doses of gibberellic acid (GA3) were studied on the growth and performance of strawberry cultivar ‘Chandler’. GA3 was applied as foliar spray at three leaf stages @ 50, 75, 100 and 150 ppm. The applied GA3 @ 150 ppm significantly increased the plant height, leaf area index (LAI), crown size and fruit yield. However, this dose of GA3 (150 ppm) significantly decreased the shelf life and spoilage of fruit. Foliar application of GA3 @ 75 ppm significantly increased the fruit ascorbic acid content. It is inferred that exogenous application of GA3 @ 150 ppm could improve the yield and quality of strawberry fruits for better economic returns.
