Studies on the influence of Integrated Nutrient Management were undertaken during Rabi season, 2018-19 at College of Horticulture, Venkataramannagudem, West Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh with an objective of examining their influence on quality and yield of Strawberry fruits (Fragaria × ananassaDuch.) cv. Camarosa grown under shade net conditions. The experiment was consisting of 9 treatments replicated thrice comprising of different combinations of inorganic fertilizers, organic manures

Among different combinations 75 % RDN + 25% N through Vermicompost + Arka Microbial Consortium registered highest number of fruits plant-1 (24.00), fruit diameter (3.18 cm) , fruit weight (13.40 g), fruit volume(21.24 cm3), fruit yield plant-1 (292.54 g), shelf life (44.10 h), juice recovery percentage (91.10 %) , TSS (11.05 °B), total sugars (7.71%), ascorbic acid (69.20 mg/100 g of pulp) and anthocyanin content (62.30 mg100g-1).
