Keywords: strawberry | rosettes | quality | planting time | yield

The influence of planting time and the quality of rosettes on yield in two strawberry cultivars: Senga sengana and Pocahontas was researched. We used three kinds of rosettes: unrooted, produced from mother orchard mulched on black folio, and rooted rosettes, with developed root, produced from mother orchard on bare soil and rooted cuttings. The rosettes were planted in three occasions: 15.08, 15.09 and 15.10. According to the results, all kinds of rosettes planted first gave the highest yield, and this was found with high and significant statistical differences. The rosettes planted on the 15th of August gave 73-79% higher yield versus the laterplanted rosettes of the 15th of September and 15th of October. Rooted rosettes produced on mother orchard on bare soil gave 17% and 27% higher yield than rooted cuttings and unrooted rosettes. Statistically significant differences between cultivars with regard to the quality of the rosettes and the planting time were not found.
