The Effects of Biomin Calcium Applied Through Drip Irrigation on Strawberries

Strawberry plants treated with Biomin calcium had significantly higher fruit weight (treatment mean fruit weight 26.5 ± 6.57g., control mean fruit weight 23.2 ± 5.82g., n = 240, p-value = 0.00072)(Fig.3).
Plants that received biomin calcium tested significantly higher in Ca tissue levels (treatment Ca tissue level mean 0.90 ± 0.11%, control Ca tissue level mean 0.86 ± 0.20%, n = 17, p-value = 0.00019)(Fig.5). Plants treated with biomin calcium tested significantly higher in Zn tissue levels (treatment Zn tissue level mean 34.18 ± 3.89 ppm., control Zn tissue level mean 33.12 ± 8.16 ppm., n = 17, p-value = 0.0017). Strawberry plants treated with biomin calcium had significantly higher B tissue levels (treatment B tissue level mean 62.65 ± 7.62 ppm., control B tissue level mean 59.72 ± 15.14 ppm., n = 17, p-value = 0.041). The strawberry plants treated with biomin calcium had significantly higher fruit sugar levels (treatment fruit sugar level mean 10.66 ± 0.55%, control fruit sugar level mean 10.3 ± 0.58%, n = 50, p-value = 0.0042)(Fig.4). There were not any significant differences in the soil analysis tests taken through out the season.
