This work aims to study some agronomic parameters on strawberry cultivars installed at the experimental field of Larache, National Institute of Agricultural Research of Tangier, Morocco. The study was carried out on two cultivars of strawberry Fortuna and Victory. The results showed that the Victory cultivar (11.85Kg / plant) had a better yield compared to the cultivar Fortuna (5.26Kg / plant). The sugar level between the different stages increased to 2.7℅ for Victory and 2.62℅ for Fortuna in the red stage ¾ and then decreased to 2.5 for both varieties. The Victory cultivar showed greater leaf area and higher average stomatal conductance compared to the Fortuna cultivar, while the Fortuna cultivar showed higher chlorophyll content compared to the Victory cultivar.
