To study the effect of nanoparticle anatase on some parameters of strawberry plant (Queen Eliza) an experiment in randomized complete block design was carried out with 3 replications. Nano Anatase in seven concentrations of 0, 1.5, 3.5, 5.5, 7.5, 9.5 and 11.5 mg per liter, with Hoagland solution for hydroponically grown plants (Cocopeat) was added to 4 times a week. At the end of the experimental period (3 months), chlorophyll content, TSS/TA, vitamin C, fruit set percentage, shoot and root dry weight and yield were measured and their data analyzed with SAS software. The results showed that nano-anatase at the highest concentration (11.5 mg/ ml) was best treatment and significantly increased all the different strawberry measured traits in this experiment.

Keywords: Titanium, chlorophyll, photo catalyst, nano.
