ABSTRACT

Studies were carried out in the years 2008–2009 on the area of the Experimental
Station of Fruit Growing Department, University of Life Sciences in Pozna˝.
The aim of the studies was an attempt to limit the negative effects of soil replantation
disease in the growing of strawberries by using the biological preparation Polyversum
WP and the mycorrhizal inoculation. Study results have confirmed the negative
influence of replantation disease on the growth of strawberry root system. An
improvement of plant root growth was obtained with the use of microbiological
preparations. It refers particularly to the mycorrhizal inoculation which, when
applied in conditions of replantation disease, has shown both a statistically
proven increase of strawberry plant root length and the root neck diameter growth.
A well developed root system treated with biological preparations has contributed
to a better growth of the plant above ground parts. The surface area of strawberry
leaf blades in combination with the application of Polyversum WP preparation
and the mycorrhizal inoculation was higher than in plants grown on a replanted
soil without the application of the mentioned preparation.

Key words: replantation, soil sickness, root system of strawberry, mycorrhizal inoculation, Polyversum WP .
