Strawberry is one of the most delicious and refreshing soft fruit of the world. It is mainly grown in temperate climate but varieties are available which can successfully be cultivated in subtropical or even in tropical climate as well. Growth, yield and quality of strawberry fruits are highly influenced by the application of different bio-fertilizers in combination with inorganic fertilizers. Thereby, the present research has been conducted to identify the suitable combination of inorganic and bio-fertilizers for getting higher yield of quality fruit as well as their longer storage life. The results of the present study revealed that the plant growth, yield and fruit quality parameters significantly increased with the application of (NPK+ Azotobacter+ PSB). The study also exposed that the availability of soil nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium in strawberry crop ecosystem improved with the application of (NPK+ Azotobacter + PSB). While the minimum physiological losses and minimum spoilage losses of fruit were recorded with the inoculation of bio-fertilizers (Azotobacter+ PSB) only. We hope both researchers and growers would obviously be benefitted from the findings of this study.
