Journal homepage: http://www.ijcmas.com Effect of different growing media on plant growth and fruit yield of strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) cv. Chandler under protected conditions were conducted during the cropping seasons of 2015-16 and 2016-17. The studies concluded that perlite + FYM (1:1) media was most effective in improving plant growth and yield parameters than all other treatments. The studies have also revealed that perlite as a growing media was very effective in improving

The studies have conclusively proved perlite in combination with FYM to be an effective media that can be successfully used for producing elite planting material of strawberry under polyhouse.
