YIELD AND QUALITY EVOLUTION OF STRAWBERRY CROP UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF MINERAL FERTILIZATION PUBLISHEDAna Maria DODOCIOIU, Gh. MATEI
Abstract. The use of different doses of fertilizers on the cambic chernozyom from Radovan (Dolj) had a benefic effect on the production of strawberries. The use of moderate doses of nitrogen on phosphorus and potassium background has resulted in getting the highest yields 21.6 t/ha and a production increase of 116%. The fertilizers used were directly influenced by the quality and attributes of strawberry fruits. Biggest fruits are obtained as a result of using N130P40K71 dose, as well as the highest content in total and soluble organic matter (12.9 to 10.3%). Total sugars and glucides content are higher when using N130P40K71 dose, respectively 8.55. The content of ascorbic acid and total acidity of the fruit are higher when using high doses of fertilizers N6P128K100 - 57.5%.
