Strawberry (Fragaria X ananassa Duch.) yield as affected by the soil pH
Article (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
Two-year trials (2006-2007) suggested that the use of calcium oxide (CaO) on acid soils increased soil pH and yields in strawberry cultivars Marmolada, Selena and Senga Sengana, under the environmental conditions of Cacak (Western Serbia). The highest yield was obtained when CaO was applied at 750 kg ha(-1) rate. Further increase in rate up to 1,500 kg ha(-1) did not show corresponding increase in yield; the result was a slight yield drop compared to the peak yield shown at 750 kg ha(-1) rate. Overall, yields at rates above 750 kg ha(1) were still higher than control and in the treatment employing lowest CaO application rate of 250 kg ha(-1).
