Consumption of strawberries has been asserted to have many health promoting bioactive compounds including antioxidants.  Growing fruits and vegetables hydroponically represent a possible opportunity towards sustainable crop production; it would be beneficial to examine the feasibility and the potential ability to replace soil systems for growing strawberries.  Unlike leafy greens, the root structures, stalk, and fruit are more complex and require more physical support. In this study, hydroponic…

Hydroponic techniques: A soilless cultivation in agriculture
In order to expand the scope for development in agriculture in India there is a need for Hi-tech production systems. To overcome constraints like water availability, small land holdings, disease and
An Overview of Soil and Soilless Cultivation Techniques—Chances, Challenges and the Neglected Question of Sustainability
Resources such as fertile soil and clean water are already limited in many parts of the world. Additionally, the conventional use of arable land is becoming increasingly difficult, which is further
Changes in Growth Physiology of Vigna unguiculata in Hydroponic System
TLDR
In present studies, an attempt was done to optimize growth of Vigna unguiculata plants in cellulose based sponge as supporting medium and influence of different hormones IAA, BAP and GA on growth physiology of plants at morphological, anatomical and cellular level was studied.
Brassinosteroid Applications Enhance the Tolerance to Abiotic Stresses, Production and Quality of Strawberry Fruits
Brassinosteriods (BRs) have increasingly been used to improve the yields and quality of various crops. In this work we studied the effect of two brassinosteroids, BB16 and EP24, on the growth
Growth, Productivity, and Quality of Strawberry as Affected by Propagation Method and Cultivation System
This study was conducted to investigate productivity of strawberry plants as affected by propagation method and cultivation system. Transplants propagated by cutting propagation and pinning
Applying Different Magnetic Water Densities as Irrigation for Aeroponically and Hydroponically Grown Strawberries
Due to the scarcity of water, it is necessary to develop an environmentally friendly method for increasing water productivity and crop production. An experiment was conducted to assess the effects of
The Effect of Cultivation Method of Strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duch.) cv. Honeoye on Structure and Degradation Dynamics of Pectin during Cold Storage
TLDR
Results from this experiment showed that strawberries produced by organic farming methods had better biochemical properties compared to conventional fruit; however, pectin transformation undergone faster limits their further technological applications.
