Testing of Ogalalla, Solana and Gorella strawberry cultivars under polyethylene mulching and tunnels

Acta Horticulturae (42): 191-196

Testing of Ogalalla, Solana and Gorella strawberry cultivars under polyethylene mulching and tunnels

Plants of the 3 cvs were planted in November, 1971, and grown unprotected or with a white or black 400-gauge polyethylene mulch or with a black mulch + a white tunnel consisting of 1 or 2 sheets of polyethylene. The tunnels were dismantled on 15 April, 1972. Because of frost in late April, 1972, the yields of Solana and Gorella were much smaller than that of the perpetual bearing, day-neutral Ogalalla.

Compared with polyethylene tunnels Celloflex tunnels induced earlier fruiting and production of smaller fruit in both cvs. Total yields were reduced in Gorella but raised in Redgauntlet.
