Abstract: Strawberry runners were transplanted in Fruit nursery at VCSG College of horticulture Bharsar, during the rainy seasons 2014-2015, to investigate the effect of different fertilizers and pesticide and their interactions on the vegetative growth, yield and quality of strawberry plants cv. Shimla Delicious. The experiment included 12 treatments resulted from the combination between four fertilizer doses and three pesticides application methods. Results show that using 100:80:60 kg/ha NPK + vermicompost + runners dip with imidacloprid was significantly found most effective in respect to plant growth characters viz., plant height (cm), number of leaves per plant, fruit length (mm), fruit breadth (mm), days to fruit maturity, number of runners per plant, yield characters viz., number of fruit, berry weight (g), yield per plant (g), quality parameters viz., total soluble solids (0B), total soluble solid to titratable acidity ratio, total sugar (%), reducing sugar (%), non reducing sugar (%), incidence of pest viz., leaf damage (%), fruit damage (%), pest population. Higher content of vitamin C and anthocyanin were observed in 100:80:60 kg/ha + vermicompost + foliar application of imidacloprid. The least values were recorded in the control. After harvest strawberry fruits were treated with four concentration of CaCl2 namely (0.0%), (0.5 %), (1.0 %), (1.5 %). Among the treatments 1 % CaCl2 concentration found most effective followed by (0.0 %), (0.5 %) and (1.5 %) in stored at refrigerator condition. 1% CaCl2 under refrigerator condition increases the shelf life of strawberry till 9 days, viz., fruit length (mm), fruit breadth (mm) total soluble solids (0B), titratable acidity (%), total soluble solid to titratable acidity ratio, vitamin C (mg/100 g) content.
