Producing strawberries in high-pH soil at high elevations

6 abril 2015

Scientists designed an experiment with 16 strawberry cultivars planted in two perennial planting systems in New Mexico. The experiments evaluated strawberry tolerance to high-pH soil, and determined yield potential in high-pH soil of the high-elevation areas in the US Southwest. Results indicated that growers can produce certain varieties of strawberries in the challenging conditions. The study contains recommendations regarding the most tolerant strawberry cultivars for the conditions and region.
